NORWICH City today insisted Delia Smith remained “committed” to the club - despite speculation she was on the brink of quitting.
Chief executive Neil Doncaster said the majority shareholder had no plans to leave the Championship side.
Reports in a national newspaper this morning suggested Delia and her husband, Mike Wynn Jones, were planning to sell her stake in the Canaries.
“I have seen the speculation in the Press and I have no reason to believe there's anything in those reports,” said Doncaster.
"Delia has external commitments with her filming and book but I have no reason to believe this is a long-term strategic decision at all.”
“I believe she will remain as committed to the football club as she has been over the past 10 years.”
