Norwich City transfer target Kingsley Schindler intends to see out his contract with Bundlesliga 2 side Holstein Kiel.

Schindler had been interesting the Canaries this summer but the 25-year-old insisted over the weekend that he will honour his contract at Holstein Kiel, which runs out next summer.

'I decided a while ago to fulfil my contract with the KSV,' he said. 'That's why I was very surprised that I was recently connected with Norwich City again.'

'Of course, Kingsley Schindler would like to play in the Bundesliga, I understand that too,' said Walter, who lost last season's top scorer and one-time City target Marvin Ducksch to Fortuna Dusseldorf this summer. 'But the discussion about our players is over, that is not negotiable. Around this framework, we want to bring fresh blood, rejuvenate the squad purposefully.'
