Gabby Agbonlahor has claimed “it doesn’t make sense” for Todd Cantwell to quit Norwich City for Aston Villa.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, Villa’s record Premier League goalscorer insisted Norwich’s recent promotion back to the Premier League will keep the 23-year-old at Carrow Road.
Cantwell provided his sixth assist of the Championship season this weekend in Norwich’s 4-1 win over Reading that confirmed them as champions.
The Daily Mail report the Canaries are braced for interest from Villa for the left-winger who could be a potential replacement for Jack Grealish.
Asked whether Cantwell would be a good addition to Dean Smith’s squad, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “Todd Cantwell has gone up with Norwich.
“He didn’t get a move when they went down so I think he’ll stay there.
“He’ll stay there and play in the Premier League with Norwich. It doesn’t make sense for him to leave.”
Football Insider revealed during last year’s summer window Leeds United submitted a £15million bid for England Under-21 international Cantwell.
