    Six years on from catching the Barcelona great’s eye the inspirational Norwich midfielder is relishing a Premier League return

    Six years ago Barcelona were coasting at the Camp Nou, five goals into a 6-0 destruction of Getafe, but before the second half began Lionel Messi covered his mouth and encouraged a then 18-year-old midfielder, who had represented Spain at youth level a month earlier, to switch allegiances. “I maybe did something good to impress him,” Emi Buendía says, smiling. “He asked: ‘What do you want to do? Do you want to play for Spain or Argentina?’ Quickly I said: ‘Of course I want to play for Argentina. I want to play with you – it is a dream.’”

    • Dan Gosling winner puts Watford nine points clear in second
    • Brentford held by Cardiff, Swansea beaten at home by QPR

    Watford took a giant step towards automatic promotion from the Championship as they beat the promoted leaders Norwich at Carrow Road. Dan Gosling’s winner moved the Hornets nine points clear in second after Swansea lost at home to QPR and Brentford drew with Cardiff.

    Xisco’s side bounced back from a shock defeat at Luton in the best possible fashion as Dan Gosling’s second-half goal earned them a priceless victory. For Norwich, this was a second home defeat in four days since booking their Premier League return. Daniel Farke’s team could have secured the title with a win, but are still five points clear of Watford with three games to play.

    Leaders Hull twice came from a goal down to earn a 2-2 draw against Sunderland. The Black Cats went ahead through Jordan Jones' early goal before being pegged back by Josh Magennis. Grant Leadbitter restored Sunderland's lead from the penalty spot but Magennis struck again midway through the second half to earn the hosts a point.

    Southend look doomed to non-league football after a 2-0 defeat by Colchester. The Shrimpers, who have been a league club since 1920, are eight points from safety with only three games remaining after first-half goal from Michael Folivi and Harry Pell sealed defeat against their Essex rivals.

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Norwich City have just had a bid to bring Leeds United player Robert Snodgrass to Carrow Road as Neil Warnock last night dashed all hopes of the Canaries signing the talented winger. Manager Chris Hughton is said to be extremely disappointed with the decision as he has been a firm fan of the player for some time but still hold hope that a deal can be struck between the two sides before the start of the season.

Norwich striker Chris Martin and his agent have both stated today that the striker would prefer to stay with the canaries amid rumours the player is surplus to requirements at Carrow Road. The twenty three year old found holding down a regular spot extremely difficult last year and then was loaned out to Crystal palace shortly afterwards but the player has now committed to the club and states he is willing to work for his place which will be great news for Norwich City fans.

Birmingham City defender Curtis Davies is another target for Hughton this summer as he has long been admirer of the young defender after he has made it clear he would like to move on from the Blues. The player is still under contract to Birmingham until 2014 after he arrived at the club from Aston Villa in early 2011 and it is thought the Blues will be holding out for a large transfer fee for the player as they have no intention of losing one of their best defenders for less than his market value.
