But Smith was quick to play down the speculation, stating Cantwell is expected to travel with the Norwich squad to face West Ham United on Wednesday evening (7:45pm kick-off).
“There has been no developments at all,” Smith responded in his pre-match press conference when asked about Cantwell’s future.
“Todd has been ill which is why he wasn’t in the squad at the weekend. He didn’t train [on Monday], he was still feeling ill but I expect him to train [on Tuesday] and be in the squad tomorrow.”
The 23-year-old midfielder is out of contract at Carrow Road in the summer but Norwich do have an option to extend his deal for another year.
