Transfer Rumour - Interest For Dorrans Hots Up

According to the Scottish Sun the newly promoted Glasgow team are after Graham Dorrans to boost their midfield over the summer, but Norwich City manager Alex Neil is having none of it

“Graham’s going nowhere. He’ll be staying here. I want him part of the squad for next season, he will be an important player for us,” he said.

The experienced Scottish international who was a key part of Norwich's promotion team 12 months ago has one year left on his existing Carrow Road deal, but Neil indicated exploratory talks have already started on a possible contract extension.

“He’s got a year left of his contract and he’s spoken to us about a possible extension. There has been no interest in Graham — and Rangers won’t be able to afford him anyway.”

Dorrans returned to the starting line up for the final two games of City’s Premier League relegation following injury to Johnny Howson.

Alex Neil is spending the early part of this week speaking to all his senior players as he starts the re-build for Norwich’s Championship return.

Now a couple of weeks on the Daily Mail takes the story further though by reporting that City are considering the sale of Graham Dorrans, claiming that Burnley, Middlesbrough and Rangers are all interested in the Scotland international.

Dorrans made 25 appearances for Alex Neil’s side last season, with eight of those coming from the bench as the former West Brom man struggled to make his mark.

The 29-year-old only joined permanently last summer though, after helping the Canaries seal promotion via the Championship play-offs during an initial loan spell.
