Norwich City manager Neil Adams has rubbished reports the Canaries have made a big money bid for Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes, as reported by Sky Sports.

Rhodes is one of the hottest prospects in the country, scoring 25 goals last season for Rovers taking his tally to 139 strikes in five years.

The 24-year-old is valued at around £12million and West Ham along with Everton are monitoring the situation in preparation of a bid.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is keen to add goals to his lacklustre front line and Everton are unlikely to be able to secure the services of Romelu Lukaku again.

Norwich however have not made a bid but Adams refused to rule out the chance of one going in.

“I’ve seen all the rumours. I think they’ve put two and two together and come up with 25,” Adams said.

“Obviously Joe Royle had him as a young player, and I played with his dad Andy Rhodes. That’s where the links are.

“We’ve made no offer for Jordan Rhodes – fantastic player, don’t get me wrong. Scores goals for fun, guarantees goals, but there’s been no offer.”
