Tranmere Rovers’ James Norwood has made comments being reported by the East Anglian Daily Times refusing to be drawn on his future at the club.
Norwood is coming off the back of what must be the best season of his career. He scored a stunning 32 goals for Tranmere this season, leading them into the Sky Bet League Two final. And while he was unable to score in the match, he helped them to beat Newport County in extra time with strike partner Connor Jennings getting the only goal of the game. He was also voted as the 18th Best Player in the EFL in our annual Top 50 Players of the EFL Countdown.
In the post-match interviews that happened on the pitch following the game, Norwood was asked about his future. His contract is set to expire in the summer and he’s been linked with a move away from the club this summer. But he refused to talk about his future, saying he just wanted to concentrate on enjoying getting promotion with Tranmere.
He said: “I’m not too sure, we’ve only just played the final so it’s not for me to comment,”
“I’m going to enjoy tonight then enjoy the next week when we all fly off on holiday and see if I remember the week.”
His chairman Mark Palios said: “I’d absolutely love to have James with us, he’s been with us for four years and we extended his contract two years ago,”
“He’s at the age he’s at and what’s to test himself at a higher level, but we’re at a higher level now so that should factor into negotiations.”
“James and I have a good relationship. We made an offer and then agreed to get on with the job in hand, which was to get out of this league. We’ve done that now.”
“We’ll start to talk on Monday again.”
