IRELAND INTERNATIONAL WES Hoolahan believes it would be in Norwich’s best interest to allow him to leave in this transfer window.

Last night, the Canaries confirmed that the 31-year-old had submitted a transfer request — which they have rejected.

However, the Dubliner, who has been linked with a move to Aston Villa, this morning told Sky Sports that he feels he has been left with no alternative.

“Following a meeting with the club chief executive, I felt I had no option but to hand in transfer request, I have noted that request has been turned down – however I believe it is in the best interest of Norwich, for whom I have the greatest respect, and myself that I am allowed to move on and play my football elsewhere.”
