Sky Sports sources understand Norwich City have had a £3.5million offer for winger Robert Snodgrass rejected by Leeds United.

Norwich boss Paul Lambert is busy assembling a squad for the Premier League and has already brought in striker James Vaughan from Everton.

A deal in excess of £2million has also been agreed with Millwall for Steve Morison and now a move has been made to bring Snodgrass to Carrow Road.

Snodgrass has been an influential performer for Leeds since joining the club from Livingston in 2008 and he has made over 140 appearances.

He is also now a Scotland international and has regularly been linked with a switch to the top flight, with the likes of Stoke City and Newcastle United previously mooted as admirers.

However, it appears Norwich will have to up the ante in their efforts to capture Snodgrass after the club's initial bid for the 23-year-old was turned down.
