Smith set to be offered the Norwich City job

Smith was only sacked by Aston Villa last weekend after five Premier League trotting losses.

Norwich had been keen to nominate Frank Lampard, but the former Chelsea boss turned down their advances after consulting with friends and former colleagues.

According to reports, Norwich were impressed with the former Walsall and Brentford boss after an interview in which he boasted “extensive knowledge of the squad, the style of play and the culture of the club”.

The Canaries hope to resolve their current managerial situation as quickly as possible, as they face Southampton at Carrow Road after the international break.

Norwich have won just five points so far this season – the same as Newcastle – but sit in last place due to their goal difference.

They sacked ex-boss Farke despite their first win of the season last weekend, which gave them some hope in their attempt to survive in the Premier League.
