LAFFERTY WANTS PREM STAY.
Northern Ireland international Kyle Lafferty is keen on fighting for his place at newly promoted side Norwich and isn't interested in moving on loan to a Championship club.
The attacker has told Norwich City's manager Alex Neil that he is ready to replicate his form for his country side at Carrow Road and won't be taking the easy option to go out on loan.
He said: “I'm not going to take the easy option and go out on loan to a Championship team, play the long-ball game. I want to play against the best players in the world in the Premier League.
"When I was a young boy I sat watching Match of the Day, dreaming of playing there, so I'm not going to throw my hat in now and take that easy option.
"I will just go back and work my socks off in training and keep on knocking on the manager's door.
"If he sits me down and says I'm not in his plans, then it's time for me to make a decision whether I do go out on loan or stay and work even harder to change his mind."
