Norwich City forward Kyle Lafferty has been linked with a move to Leeds United in the January transfer window.

Norwich City forward Kyle Lafferty has stated on social networking site Twitter that he is not thinking about joining Leeds United at the moment.

The 28-year-old is struggling for playing time at Premier League outfit Norwich and has been linked with a move to Leeds in the January transfer window.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported back in November that the Championship side are interested in signing the Northern Ireland striker in January.

The same newspaper quoted Leeds head coach Steve Evans as saying after the match against MK Dons on Saturday: “I understand Kyle Lafferty watched the game. He must have bought a ticket! He’s a Norwich player and the clubs are having a chat. We’ll see where it goes.”

Lafferty, who has played for Rangers and Palermo among other clubs, has made it clear that he did not attend the game at Elland Road.

The striker has also stated that he is happy at Norwich and is not looking to leave Carrow Road this month.

Lafferty has managed to feature in just one Premier League game for Norwich so far this season.

During the 2014-15 campaign, the former Burnley striker scored one goal and created 16 chances in 18 Championship appearances for the Canaries.
