Leeds’ Robert Snodgrass on Norwich City’s radar once again - reports

Scotland international winger Robert Snodgrass has re-emerged as a potential transfer target for Norwich City, according to reports.

The Leeds United captain has one year remaining on his Elland Road contract and has so far refused to sign a new deal.

Snodgrass, 24, has questioned the Yorkshire club's ambition in the transfer market after they finished 14th in the Championship, 14 points adrift of the play-off places.

His former Leeds midfield colleagues, Bradley Johnson and Jonny Howson, became part of the Canaries' Premier League success story and he has been tipped to follow them to Carrow Road.

Snodgrass played under City boss Paul Lambert at Livingston, where he was also a team-mate of Wes Hoolahan.

The Canaries will not comment on the latest link with Snodgrass. They were reported to have had a �3.5m offer for the player rejected last summer, but he is one year nearer to the end of his contract. Newcastle and Stoke have also been linked with the Glasgow-born winger.

Leeds have offered Snodgrass a new deal which, it is understood, would make him their top earner on �15,000 per week.

He said: 'The chairman is trying to put a bit of pressure on me.

'He's telling me what plans he has got for the club. But they told me the same type of plans the season before and it didn't work out. So it's hard to buy into these things again. I'm captain now, so I should be able to just sit back and let everything else happen. But it's a wee bit unfortunate that I'm in this situation. I'll make the right decision when the time comes.'

United boss Neil Warnock said he understood Snodgrass's position.

Warnock said: 'When I spoke to Snods he said to me 'Twelve months ago it was Max Gradel, Bradley Johnson, Jonny Howson and me in midfield, and now I'm the only one left'.

'I understand where he is coming from. I know he is saying 'Let's see how ambitious the club are'.

'He is going to wait and see who we sign and how the situation develops. I have seen some of his comments, and he has come out and said he's heard it all before at the club.

'Snods has been here longer than me, so probably he knows more about the politics than I do.'

Snodgrass signed for Leeds in 2008 in a �150,000 move from Livingston.

Former Leeds winger and manager Eddie Gray has no doubts about the player's ability to perform at Premier League level.

He wrote in the Yorkshire Evening Post: 'Robert Snodgrass has proved, over the past few seasons at Leeds United, that he's a top-class player.

'He wants to play at the highest level, I think that's what he's saying with his comments this week.

'And if the opportunity comes around, it looks like he might take it and I don't think anyone can blame him for that.'
