Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell has spoken about speculation linking him with a move to Aston Villa this summer.
The 23-year-old has been linked with a transfer to Villa Park this summer with reports claiming that Dean Smith saw the midfielder as a potential replacement for Jack Grealish who joined Man City in a £100 million deal earlier in the transfer window.
Cantwell has impressed in both the Premier League and Championship for Norwich since breaking into the first team in 2018.
The midfielder was linked with a move away from Carrow Road last summer, something which impacted on his performances.
But, speaking of the speculation this time around, the player says that the experience of last summer has helped him.
“As you get older and a little more experienced you learn how to deal with things a little bit better and it is what it is,” he told the Eastern Daily Press
“If you’re here and you’re training and you’re playing, that’s where your focus is and it’s as simple as that at the moment.
“I’m looking forward to the next game after the international break.”
Cantwell has started all three of the Canaries’ Premier League games so far this season, with his most recent appearance coming in the 2-1 loss against Leicester City.
And Cantwell has admitted he is still adapting to the new position.
“With the players gelling, I think people need time to get used to new positions and get their understandings,” he said.
“It was Emi before and I was very used to playing off the left. For me, it’s just about adapting and trying to contribute as well as I can.”
