Alexander Tettey had confirmed that he is in talks to leave Norwich City this summer, with Rosenborg looking like they’ll become his new employers.
The 31-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and as it stands, it looks like both the player and the club have agreed to a mutual parting as no extension talks have even taken place.
Speaking to Norwegian outlet VG, Tettey confirmed that there has been some contact with Rosenborg and that he’s unlikely to extend his deal with the Canaries.
Those I’m working with have talked to Rosenborg. I can certainly say that. It is Bjørn Tore Kvarme who has talked with them. None of the parties (his representatives or Norwich) have attempted to get a conversation about [an extension].
Tettey was born in Ghana but moved to Norway at a very young age and he has represented them at international level. He met his partner in Norway and he told VG that she is keen to move back to her homeland if possible.
There is no doubt that my wife wants to go home if there is an offer from Norway. She is from Trondheim. Most likely, I will be settled there.
However, it is not nailed on that the midfielder will move back to Norway, as he is not ruling out a switch elsewhere.
I’m not 19 years anymore. I do not need a lucrative offer, but it must be a good frame. I do not make any big demands if I go home. If a club comes with a good solution, I may be interested.
Tettey moved to Norwich in 2012 from Rennes and has gone on to play over 150 games for the club.However, it looks like this will be his last season at Carrow Road and the odds are that he makes a return to Norway in the summer.
