Norwich City midfielder Wes Hoolahan admits that he would relish the chance to be reunited with former boss Paul Lambert at Aston Villa.

Norwich City midfielder Wes Hoolahan believes that he played the "best football of his career" under the guidance of Paul Lambert.

The Canaries released a statement on Tuesday that the Republic of Ireland international was not for sale, but Hoolahan has revealed that he craves a move to Aston Villa, who are managed by his former boss at Carrow Road.

The 31-year-old told the Express & Star: "I haven't spoken to anybody at Aston Villa, but of course, a move to play for Paul Lambert again would appeal to me.

"I played some of the best football of my career under him and it was Paul who converted me from a winger to playing in the hole behind the striker.

"I tried to do things sensibly and quietly because I've not been involved whatsoever. But I was told that the club do not want to sell me."

Hoolahan has made 12 appearances for Norwich during the current campaign.
