Canaries’ goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely has left Norwich City by mutual consent.
City confirmed the widely-expected departure of the former West Brom and Charlton keeper on Thursday morning. Kiely’s exit follows on from Frankie McAvoy, who left the club earlier in the week and is now primed to link up again with ex-Norwich boss Alex Neil at Championship rivals Preston.
Kiely’s next career move is less certain, but his departure is not believed to be the precursor to a potential Deepdale switch.
The club statement read: “Norwich City can confirm that Dean Kiely has left the club by mutual consent.
“He joined the Canaries as head goalkeeping coach back in March 2015, having left a similar role at West Bromwich Albion in January of that year.
“Everybody at Norwich City would like to thank Dean for his time at the club and wish him all the very best for the future.”
City will now look to recruit a new goalkeeping coach to Daniel Farke’s backroom team with his former coach at Borussia Dortmund II, Matthias Kleinsteiber, tipped to join the growing German contingent at Carrow Road.
