The 40-year-old former Wales international midfielder was manager of Bristol Rovers from 2005 to 2010, coming up against the Canaries during the League One campaign of 2009-10.

The son of legendary former Swindon defender John Trollope, he played for nine different clubs over an 18-year career, including Torquay, Derby, Fulham and Northampton, and represented Wales nine times between his debut in 1997 and 2003. Sacked by Bristol Rovers in December 2010, he became coach alongside Hughton at Birmingham last July, helping the Blues to fourth place in the Championship.

• Ewan Chester

Chief scout Chester is back for his second spell at Carrow Road.

Chester joined Birmingham last season after leaving the Canaries at the end of the August transfer window.

The Scot arrived at Norwich in May 2010 from Glasgow Rangers after enjoying great success at Ibrox. He also spent two seasons at Fulham. Following Chester's exit from Norwich, it was confirmed that Colin Jackson had been appointed in his place.

Interviewed three months ago, Chester said: 'I have a lot of time for Norwich. They did brilliantly to get into the Premier League and I think they will be there for some time but I am good friends with Chris Hughton and the chance to come and work with him was too great.'
