Max Aarons is not paying attention to the speculation surrounding his future and is instead focused on getting Norwich City back into the Premier League at the first attempt.

The Canaries caused one of the shocks of the season by beating Manchester City 3-2 at Carrow Road back in September but it turned out to be a rare highlight in a tough campaign that saw them relegated by some margin.

Daniel Farke's men won only five matches on their return to the top flight as they ultimately finished 14 points off safety at the foot of the table.

Their demotion has of course led to speculation surrounding their better players, of which Aarons is most definitely one, as other Premier League clubs look to take advantage.

Tottenham have long been linked with a move for the 20-year-old full-back but he insists that his sole focus is to be ready for the fast-approaching new season with Norwich as they look to "attack" the Championship.

Speaking to the Athletic, Aarons said: "I've got four years left on my contract here, so I'll be coming back ready to go. Ready to attack next year.

"As the manager said, we need some fresh blood, we've made two new signings (in Jacob Sorensen and Przemyslaw Placheta) and it looks really positive.

"They will definitely improve the team. We've got a good core group here and if we can just add some fresh energy at different points, we'll be stronger than ever."

Norwich will be joined in the Championship next term by Watford and Bournemouth, with Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion having secured automatic promotion from the second tier.

Brentford and Fulham will do battle in the Championship play-off final next Tuesday to see who replaces the Canaries in the top flight, with the BeesĀ 1.53 to win at Wembley while the Cottagers are 2.50.
