Chris Hughton quells talk of John Ruddy moving to Chelsea by insisting that he wants to keep the goalkeeper at Norwich City.

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has revealed that he has no intention of parting with goalkeeper John Ruddy.

The England international was recently the subject of a reported £5m offer from Chelsea that the Canaries rejected.

It has been reported that the Blues are preparing an improved bid for the 26-year-old in the near future, but Hughton has insisted that he is keen to keep hold of all his key players.

"We see very much John's future here and we look forward to him being here," said Hughton. "John would be no different to any player we have here. Any interest in any of our players is just a mark and a testament to how well those individuals have done.

"We start back training on Thursday. John is very much part of our plans and will be here. Then we go away to Austria next week and of course John is very much part of that. Any interest shown in any of our players is just a mark of how well they have done."

Ruddy joined Norwich in 2010 from fellow Premier League side Everton.
