Birmingham manager Chris Hughton has been granted permission to speak to Norwich.

The Canaries are in the market for a new boss after Paul Lambert completed a switch to Aston Villa on Saturday. Hughton has been heavily linked to the managerial vacancy at Blues' neighbours West Brom, but the 53-year-old is now set for talks at Carrow Road.

A statement released by Birmingham on Wednesday morning read: "Birmingham City FC can confirm that Norwich City FC have made an approach for Chris Hughton with regards to their vacant managerial position."

It continued: "Hughton expressed a wish to speak to the Canaries and permission was reluctantly granted."

Acting chairman Peter Pannu said: "Chris is a great manager and deserves the opportunity to speak to Norwich, which is why we have granted him permission to speak to them."
