Norwich City have reportedly turned down a bid from Swansea City for full-back Martin Olsson.
The South Wales Evening Post claim the Premier League club are keen on signing the Swedish international, who has remained City's first-choice at left-back this season.
But Sky Sports are this evening reporting that Swansea have had bids turned down for both Olsson and Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kyle Naughton, who previously played on loan for City.
The 26-year-old has made 58 appearances since joining the Canaries from Blackburn Rovers in the summer of 2013, scoring two goals.
Olsson, who has been capped 26 times by Sweden, was heavily linked with West Ham in the summer.

'Olsson has been at Carrow Road since 2013 but it is understood the Sweden international is keen on a return to the top flight.'
With Spanish left-back Javier Garrido out of favour and recently struggling with a groin problem, it would seem unlikely the Canaries would let Olsson leave without a sizeable transfer fee, particularly as the Swede signed a four-year deal when he joined.
