The former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright is reportedly set to buy a 20% stake in non-league Billericay Town football club.

Billericay are currently eighth in the Isthmian League Premier Division, three points off the play-off places.

Wright is no stranger to the game.

He spent his childhood playing for West Ham, Arsenal and Tottenham, before beginning his senior career at Southend.

Norwich City midfielder Wes Hoolahan and Ipswich Town winger Tom Lawrence have both been ruled out of Friday's World Cup qualifier between the Republic of Ireland and Wales.

Hoolahan picked up a serious-looking thigh injury in Norwich's win over Barnsley on Saturday and Ireland manager Martin O'Neill told the press today that he's likely to be missing for a "number of weeks."

"Wes Hoolahan will be out of the game," O'Neill said.

"The scan came back this morning and it's bad news for us and for his club."

Lawrence will also miss the match due to a suspected hip injury and has been replaced by Liverpool's Harry Wilson.

Meanwhile, Norwich winger Jacob Murphy has been called up the England under-21s squad to face Germany and Denmark.

Norwich City are reportedly hoping to appoint Huddersfield Town's Head of Football Operations Stuart Webber as their new Sporting Director.

The Canaries announced a revamp of their management structure over the weekend, following the resignations of two Chief Executives in the space of just six months.

Press Association Sport understands that 33-year-old Webber is the man the Norwich board want to take on the newly created role following the Terriers' hugely impressive campaign in The Championship this season.

Webber, who previously worked as director of recruitment at Liverpool, was instrumental in bringing manager David Wagner to Yorkshire and has overseen a number of quality signings from both the German Leagues and the domestic market.

If Webber does move to Carrow Road, one of his first duties would be to help choose a new Head Coach to work alongside.
