Nigel Worthington has issued a hands-off warning to suitors of Norwich's Adam Drury.
Nigel Worthington has issued a hands-off warning to suitors of Norwich City captain Adam Drury.
The Canaries defender has been linked with a switch to Championship rivals Derby County, although no official bid has been lodged.
Worthington, though, has no intention of even listening to any interest in Drury, who has made over 200 appearances in five years at Carrow Road.
"Not as far as I am concerned," Worthington told the Pink'Un about reports Drury could be on the move.
"Not even interested in considering the idea. Adam Drury is a Norwich City player and that is the way it will remain."
While Worthington acknowledged he is prepared to countenance the departures of some players, he is still trying to add to his squad.
Norwich have been holding an interest in Jon Otsemobor, but Crewe Alexandra are aiming to hang on to the former Liverpool full back.
"We haven't heard anything and there's nothing at all in that," said Crewe's assistant manager Neil Baker.
"We feel he's going to be an important player for us this year."
