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."
