Neil in Norwich talks

Hamilton have confirmed they have given player/boss Alex Neil permission to talk to managerless Sky Bet Championship side Norwich.

The Carrow Road outfit are looking for a replacement for Neil Adams after he resigned on Monday after leading the Canaries to just four wins in their last 16 games.

Now they look set to turn to 33-year-old Neil, who has masterminded Accies' surprise storm up the Scottish Premiership table after winning promotion last summer.

Hamilton vice-chairman Ronnie MacDonald said: "Further to an official approach by Norwich City, permission was granted for our manager Alex Neil to meet the Norwich board.

"Alex travelled to Norwich today to view the stadium and training ground. Alex will return tomorrow for a meeting with myself after which a further statement will be made.

"We are delighted that Alex's achievements have been recognised by this approach and that our policy of progressing players, staff and managers continues."
