Former Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has reportedly applied for the vacant Norwich City job.

According to Press Association Sport, the 53-year-old has thrown his hat into the ring to take over from Alex Neil who was sacked last week

Pearson may still face a struggle to convince majority shareholder Delia Smith that he is the right man to land the role at Carrow Road though, having been involved in several controversial incidents at Leicester as well as being dismissed by Derby earlier this season.

Norwich are believed to be focussed on appointing a new Director of Football before they choose a new manager, with Celtic talent spotter David Moss the most likely candidate.

Moss was instrumental in bringing the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Moussa Dembélé to Scotland, but his future at Celtic Park has been thrown into doubt following the arrival of Sunderland sporting director Lee Congerton.
