A Norwich City official insists that there is no chance of Grant Holt being used as a part of a deal to sign Celtic's Gary Hooper.

Norwich City's chief executive David McNally has dismissed speculation that the club are prepared to swap captain Grant Holt for Celtic striker Gary Hooper.

Having had a bid rejected for Hooper last week, recent reports had claimed that the Canaries had approached the Scottish champions with a fresh offer that included Holt signing on at Celtic Park.

However, McNally has strongly denied those rumours and went on to insist that no key members of the Norwich squad are for sale.

"In response to nos of earlier messages, none of our senior players are for sale & won't be included in any player swaps," he wrote on Twitter.

Holt signed a new contract at Carrow Road during the summer.
