Norwich City defender Martin Olsson has told the Swedish media there was interest in him during the last transfer window. The Sweden international has just under twelve months left on his contract with Norwich City, and was linked with a move to West Ham United in the summer.
Speaking to Viasatsport during the current international break, Olsson was asked what his future plans were, following claims from the player’s agent West Ham wanted to sign the defender in the summer.
The full back confirmed there was interest in him during the window, but for now he just wants to focus on playing for Norwich City. However, in January or next summer he will make a decision of his career, with the possibility of joining a new club on a free transfer.
“During the summer, there was a club that was looking at me, but it did not happen. I’m now instead focusing on Norwich so we’ll see what happens in January or in the summer. It may be that I go on a Bosman,” said the Norwich City defender.
“We’ll see if they want to give me a new contract, but I have thought of myself as well. There may be no new contract, I will surely have several other clubs as options too.”
Due to the injury to first choice left back Aaron Cresswell, West Ham were reported to be interested in Olsson during the summer, according to Viasatsport. The 28-year old’s agent Hasan Cetinkaya confirmed the East London side were keen on his client, but a move never materialised.
However, with his contract situation at Norwich City the Hammers could still land the player on the cheap in the New Year or on a free next summer.
