Frank Lampard 'in talks' with Norwich over vacant manager's job with Chelsea legend among three names on Canaries' list

FRANK LAMPARD is 'in talks' with Norwich to become their new manager, according to reports.

The Canaries sacked Daniel Farke on Saturday – just hours after he guided them to their first win of the season.

And according to Fabrizio Romano, Lamps held conversations with the Carrow Road board today.

However, nothing has been sealed just yet as both parties consider their decisions.

Lampard is keen to return to management following his sacking as Chelsea boss in January.

The ex-Derby boss was linked with the Newcastle job before Eddie Howe's appointment.

His name has also been thrown in the hat for the job at Aston Villa.

It is understood there are three names on the shortlist for the vacancy in East Anglia.


Sky Sports state Lampard is joined by newly-sacked Villa chief Dean Smith and Southampton gaffer Ralph Hasenhuttl in the running.

According to Betfair, behind favourite Lampard for the gig is Norwegian Kjetil Knutsen who is in charge of Bodø/Glimt.

Roy Hodgson, Russell Martin, Steve Bruce, Mark Robins and Scott Parker are also in contention, the odds suggest.

Norwich have struggled to adapt to Premier League life, finally picking up three points on Saturday at Brentford.

The Canaries have lost eight of their 11 top-flight matches since winning the Championship with 97 points last season.

It means they are rooted to the bottom of the league and also rank 20th for goals scored, five, and goals conceded, 26.
