Snodgrass dealing with family issue

31 July 2013 04:46

Norwich winger Robert Snodgrass missed Tuesday night's friendly at Brighton due to a 'family issue', according to manager Chris Hughton.

The 25-year-old Scotland international has become an important player for the Canaries since joining from Leeds last year.

Such performances have seen Snodgrass linked with a summer move to West Ham but Hughton insists such speculation was not behind him missing the 1-1 draw with Brighton.

"It's very simple and I can set the record straight," he told BBC Radio Norfolk. "It's a family issue.

"He will be with us hopefully on Wednesday and certainly on Friday. It's very much a personal issue."
