IRELAND MIDFIELDER WES Hoolahan will put the disappointment of the January transfer window behind him and “knuckle down”, according to Norwich City boss Chris Hughton.
31-year-old Hoolahan was the subject of three bids by Aston Villa and another from West Brom on Deadline Day but failed to seal a move away from the Canaries — despite handing in a transfer request.
The Dubliner hasn’t appeared for Norwich since New Year’s Day but Hughton expects him to act in a professional manner and get on with the job.
“He’s a good player. There’s no doubt about that. We know what Wes brings us,” Hughton told the BBC.
I would very much expect him to knuckle down. He’s a good professional and a line has been drawn under it.”
“The transfer deadline has gone and at this moment he is still very much a Norwich City player. What he wants to do most is train well, play games and be involved and that doesn’t change.”
