Norwich City's Gary Karsa and Ian Culverhouse are set to join Paul Lambert at Aston Villa after it was confirmed they would leave Carrow Road.

The duo spent three seasons with the Canaries when Paul Lambert took charge at Carrow Road in August 2009.

A former Canary playing legend with 369 appearances from 1985 to 1994 already under his belt, Culverhouse's second spell at the Club was as Assistant Manager to Lambert.

Gary Karsa joined as Head of Football Operations, assisting Lambert and Culverhouse with administrative and player liaison duties at the club's Colney Training Centre.

"They've played a full part in a memorable and exciting era for the Club and I'm sure all Norwich fans will join everybody at Carrow Road and Colney in wishing them all the best for the future."
