Promotion chasers Norwich City have had a £2m bid for Cardiff City winger Craig Noone rejected. BBC Wales Sport tweeted the news that Cardiff actually want £5m before they consider selling Noone to Norwich.

Craig Noone has been a regular in the Cardiff City line up this season after being a star turn during the Bluebirds Premier League campaign in 2013/14. Noone though has found form and goals difficult to come by, leading to calls that he should be dropped by manager Russell Slade. However when the bid was revealed, fans flooded Twitter asking that Noone stay.

Craig Noone was once famously a roofer in Liverpool before playing football and representing minnows Skelmersdale United, Burscough and Southport. At Plymouth was where Noone broke through professionally and after a loan stint with Exeter City, Noone was transferred to Brighton and Hove Albion in the January transfer window 2011. Noone was purchased by Cardiff City in August 2012 for £1m and has established himself as a key winger at Championship level.

It is understood Craig Noone has arrived at Cardiff City Stadium this evening with many wondering the reasons behind this. Some supporters speculate it is to watch the Cardiff Development side play a fixture whilst others think it is to demand a move despite the £5m requested fee.
