Clarets make Lambert approach

Published Add your comment

Burnley have approached Norwich for permission to speak to Paul Lambert about their managerial vacancy.

The Clarets have been without a manager since parting company with Brian Laws on December 29, with Stuart Gray placed in caretaker charge for the win over Sheffield United and the defeat to Reading.

And a statement on their official website on Thursday night read: "Burnley Football Club can confirm that a formal request has been submitted to Norwich City Football Club to speak to their manager Paul Lambert."

The statement continued"The club has begun the process of targeting the shortlist of candidates to fill the vacant manager's role at Turf Moor.

"And club officials have subsequently requested permission from the Norwich City board of directors to discuss the position with Lambert."

Norwich have yet to comment on the approach but are unlikely to want to lose the Scot, who has taken them from League One into the Championship play-off places.
