Birmingham manager Chris Hughton has been given permission to speak to Norwich.
Norwich City are in the market for a new boss after Paul Lambert completed a switch to Aston Villa on Saturday.
A statement released by Birmingham this morning read:"Birmingham City FC can confirm that Norwich City FC have made an approach for Chris Hughton with regards to their vacant managerial position.
"Hughton expressed a wish to speak to the Canaries and permission was reluctantly granted."
Acting chairman Peter Pannu said: "Chris is a great manager and deserves the opportunity to speak to Norwich, which is why we have granted him permission to speak to them."
Chris Hughton, the Birmingham City manager is the bookies favourite to take over at the Hawthorns, closely followed by Alan Curbishley. But does he fancy the job? Steve Clamp caught up with him at the Birmingham City end of season awards last night.
