Norwich boss Nigel Worthington has dismissed reports that The Canaries are planning to swoop for Carlisle hot-shot Karl Hawley.

The 24-year-old was recently named as League Two's best player and has impressed a number of sides after scoring 20 league goals this season.

The likes of Middlesbrough and Newcastle were even linked with the Carlisle striker but recent reports indicated that Norwich were ready to spend £500,000 to secure his services.

Whilst admitting he has cast his eye over Hawley, the under-fire Worthington denied he is planning to make an offer for the striker.

"I think that is someone putting stories in papers to make things happen," Worthington told the Pink 'Un.

"He's someone we've run the rule over, but we keep tabs on a lot of people."

Football League clubs are still able to negotiate loan deals for the season before the transfer deadline expires on Thursday, but Worthington insists he is not looking to bring new faces to Carrow Road.

"Nothing will be happening during that time," the Canaries boss insisted.
