Lambert to be unveiled by Aston Villa as Hughton is linked with Norwich vacancy
Aston Villa will hold a press conference on Wednesday to present former Norwich City manager Paul Lambert as their new boss, replacing Alex McLeish, ITV.com has reported, while the Daily Telegraph believes Birmingham City’s Chris Hughton is in line to replace Lambert at Carrow Road.
Lambert resigned from Norwich last week in an effort to force his departure from the club and after compensation was agreed between both parties, the former Celtic and Borussia Dortmund midfielder will meet the media for the first time as Villa boss. Lambert had previously taken the Canaries from League One to 12th in the Premier League in consecutive seasons.
Replacing Lambert at Norwich could be Birmingham’s former Newcastle United manager Chris Hughton, after the Midlands club agreed a compensation package with Norwich for the 53-year-old’s services. Hughton was also linked to the vacancy at West Bromwich Albion which was created when Roy Hodgson left the Hawthorns to become England manager.
