Neil Lennon is preparing to quit Celtic in order to take the Norwich City job, according to MirrorFootball.
The Canaries were relegated from the Premier League after a dismal campaign that saw boss Chris Hughton sacked with just a month remaining of the season.
And Norwich have put Lennon at the top of their shortlist of potential candidates who they think can guide them straight back in to the top-flight at the first time of asking.
Lennon has been regularly overlooked by Premier League clubs in the past and it’s believed he is desperate for a chance to prove his worth outside of Scottish football.
He was reportedly interested in the vacant Cardiff, Sunderland and Everton jobs but he was never considered for any for them, so he may be forced to take a Championship role in order to finally get his chance.
Other candidates for the job are Gianfranco Zola and Malky Mackay, who were both sacked by Watford and Cardiff City respectively last season.
