Former Fulham coach Chris Coleman appeared to distance himself from the Norwich job yesterday when he admitted his long-term goal was to return to the Premier League.

Coleman, now in charge of Real Sociedad in Spain, has been linked with the vacancy at Bolton, as well as Norwich, but said he had not been approached by the Premier League side.

“I signed a three-year contract with La Real (Sociedad),” he said. “I said all along that the thing that would tempt me away from La Real would be the Premier League,.

“But Bolton have to ask me to go to Bolton, this hasn't happened, and La Real have to say, 'okay, you can leave', and this hasn't happened.

“I understand the speculation but in the Premier League managers lose their jobs quickly in a season, and maybe in a month, or two months, there will be a different club with no manager, and maybe I'll be linked.
