Alan Pardew is in the frame to become Norwich City's new manager.

The former Crystal Palace boss could replace Alex Neil at Carrow Road after the Scot was sacked on Friday, Press Association Sport understands.

Pardew is available after he was dismissed by Palace in December with the Eagles 17th in the Premier League.

They won six of their 36 games under Pardew in 2016 but the former West Ham chief has promotion pedigree in the Sky Bet Championship having guided the Hammers to the Premier League via the play-offs in 2005.

Former Birmingham manager Gary Rowett is also interested in the job having failed to land the Rangers role with Al-Gharafa boss Pedro Caixinha expected to move to Ibrox.

Neil was axed following five games without a win but the Canaries had already slipped off the promotion pace in the Championship after a disastrous pre-Christmas run, losing seven games in nine matches.

Burnley break club transfer record to sign international

Burnley have confirmed the club record signing of Robbie Brady from Norwich.

The Republic of Ireland international has signed a three-and-a-half year deal at Turf Moor to become their second signing on transfer deadline day.

Brady follows Ashley Westwood to the Clarets having spent the last 18-months at Carrow Road following a £7million move from Hull in 2015.

Hendrick wants Norwich star to make Burnley move

Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick has admitted he would love to entice childhood friend and fellow Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady to Turf Moor.

The Clarets have reportedly upped their bid for the unsettled Norwich winger to £13million - a fee which would eclipse the current club record paid to Derby for Hendrick this summer.

Hendrick, who has known Brady since their junior days at St Kevin's Boys' Club in Dublin, said: "For me personally it would be brilliant to have another friend here and I think he would help the squad as well.

"I text him a lot and talk to him every few days - we grew up together and I have known him since the age of seven - so we have a lot of different conversations.

"He is a great player and everyone is saying how well he's done over the previous few years. But at the end of the day the decision is his - hopefully he will see this [interview] and see how much I want him to come."

Spurs sell youngster Pritchard to Norwich

Norwich City have agreed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur to sign midfielder Alex Pritchard, it has been confirmed.

England Under-21 international Pritchard, who has previously had loan spells with Brentford and West Brom, has signed a four-year deal at Carrow Road.

I'm ready to come here, fight for my place and hopefully play well.

I feel I need to go out and prove myself again in football. I'm 23 now so it's about time I had my own path really.

I've had a full pre-season and with our first game at the weekend I'm looking forward to hopefully bedding myself in quickly.

Birmingham chasing Norwich flop Van Wolfswinkel

Birmingham want to end Ricky van Wolfswinkel's Norwich nightmare.

The Blues have held talks with the Canaries over a season-long loan for their record signing, Press Association Sport understands.

Boss Gary Rowett believes he can revive the Dutchman's career after it came to a grinding halt following his £8.5m move to Carrow Road from Sporting Lisbon in 2013.

Van Wolfswinkel has no future under Norwich manager Alex Neil and the Canaries would welcome the chance to move him on as he enters the final year of his contract.

He has scored just twice in 28 appearances and was loaned out to Saint Etienne and Real Betis in the last two seasons having flopped in Norfolk.

The 27-year-old scored just 12 goals during those loan spells and while he has played for the Canaries in pre-season his days are numbered with Neil targeting Fulham forward Ross McCormack.
