Paul Lambert is considering walking out on Wolves over their summer transfer policy – which begs the question, would you want him back as Norwich City’s new head coach?

Former Norwich City manager Paul Lambert is considering walking out on Wolves over their summer transfer plans.

Lambert took over at Molineux in November and helped steer them away from Championship relegation issues, before securing a 15th placed finish with a decent run of form towards the end of the campaign.

However, Wanderers owners Fosun have reportedly strengthened their faith in super-agent Jorge Mendes and his list of continental recruitment possibilities over the summer.

That has gone against Lambert's wishes to bring in a core of British players – a policy that brought meteoric success for the Scot during his three years in charge at Carrow Road.

And with City currently looking for a new head coach, there will immediately be some Canaries fans who would love to have Lambert back at the helm, in turn working alongside first team coach Alan Irvine who is yet to find out his City future.

Whether that would figure in the thinking of City's new sporting director Stuart Webber may be a very different debate.
