Norwich resigned to losing boss Lambert

Norwich City finally conceded defeat in their battle with Paul Lambert yesterday and are ready to begin the search for his replacement, with Neil Lennon, Malky Mackay and Steve Bruce all being linked with the post.

The departure of Lambert is a huge blow for Norwich after three seasons of incredible success and, on a disappointing day, captain and top scorer Grant Holt reaffirmed his desire to quit Carrow Road.

Talks between Villa and Norwich are continuing in a bid to settle a compensation fee.
