Steve Tilson has rubbished speculation linking Freddy Eastwood with Norwich.
Southend United boss Steve Tilson has rubbished speculation linking top scorer Freddy Eastwood with a move to Norwich City.
The Canaries may be in the market for new blood in January as they bid to stave off relegation but Tilson has made it clear that he is in no mood to off-load a player who has effortlessly made the step up in class from non-league football.
"Freddy isn't going anywhere," Tilson informed Southend's official website.
"It's the first I have heard about any such move and it's complete and utter rubbish.
"The figure being talked about is a lot of money but I can state now that Freddy isn't going to Norwich."
Eastwood has been earning rave reviews since joining The Shrimpers in October and is bound to attract further interest from bigger clubs as the season develops.
Norwich have been dealt a blow with the news that Mathias Svensson is out until 2005 with Leon McKenzie likeliest to fill the void in attack unless Gary Doherty is moved forward from his defensive role.
