Norwich City fans desperate to see Paul Lambert back in the Canaries' dug-out could be about to suffer a blow with the Scot set to take over at Championship rivals Wolves.

Whilst, according to a poll, the majority of City fans want to see manager Alex Neil given a chance to rectify his side's humiliating 5-0 defeat at Brighton, a section of Canaries' supporters have been calling for the reappointment of Lambert.

However, the 47-year-old is odds-on to be the next manager at Molineux after beating the likes of Nigel Pearson and Tim Sherwood to the job.

Lambert has been biding his time in the job market since leaving Blackburn Rovers in the summer, looking for the right opportunity to present itself.

Wolves owners, Fosun International, look set to give him that chance in the wake of Walter Zenga's sacking last month.

Despite his achievements at Carrow Road, Lambert left under a cloud in 2013, joining Aston Villa, who were on a downward curve under then owner Randy Lerner.

The Wolves job could be a chance for Lambert to get his managerial career back on track although it is likely to be without his former assistants Ian Culverhouse, now at Dagenham & Redbridge, and Gary Karsa, who is head of academy recruitment at QPR.
