Norwich midfielder Wes Hoolahan has stated his desire to leave the club in favour of a switch to Aston Villa and reuniting with ex-manager Paul Lambert, according to Sky Sports.

The 31-year-old has handed in a transfer request and has spoken out about wishing to play under his former mentor again.

“I haven't spoken to anybody at Aston Villa, but of course a move to play for Paul Lambert again would appeal to me,” said Hoolahan.

"I played some of the best football of my career under him and it was Paul who converted me from a winger to playing in the hole behind the striker.”

The Irishman played under Paul Lambert for three years at Norwich and had some of his best performances under the Scot.

Now the midfield man wishes to leave Carrow Road after losing his starting place under Chris Hughton’s reign, but the club remain firm on not selling the player.

"I tried to do things sensibly and quietly because I've not been involved whatsoever. But I was told the club do not want to sell me.

"I don't really know what will happen next, hopefully there will be more conversations to resolve the matter,” added Hoolahan.

Hoolahan joined Norwich in 2008 and helped them win back-to-back promotions to the Premier League.
