ADO Den Haag right back Tyronne Ebuehi insists he has not made any decision on his future – despite holding talks with the Canaries.
Ebuehi is currently with his club during a mid-winter training break, but is adamant reports he is poised to sign a pre-contract with Norwich are wide of the mark.
The Nigerian international is out of contract this summer and has been touted with Benfica as well as the Canaries. Den Haag have also opened contract talks to keep Ebuehi in Holland, but the defender warns they will have to up their initial offer.
'I do not think the offer I received is very great. I miss a little bit of appreciation,' he said in an interview with Dutch regional broadcaster, Omroepwest. 'I'm enjoying myself here and I do not want to leave. I still learn every day, am happy with the players and trainers and if I can sign here, I would really like to do that.
'But I am also just honest. I do not think the offer I received is very good.

'I do not concern myself with that (speculation). The most important thing now is the training camp. Of course I see messages on social media, so I can not say that I do not care about it at all. I think some rumours are pretty funny, saying I would have signed a pre-contract. That is not true either. When should I do that? In my sleep?
'It's important for a footballer of my age that I play. Of course you never get that guarantee, but there is a good chance that ADO Den Haag does. If I embark on a new adventure, then that opportunity is a bit smaller, of course.
