Team Lotus principal Tony Fernandes has revealed he would once again consider investing in Norwich after admitting he pondered doing so last year.

The Malaysian entrepreneur decided against putting money into the Canaries while they were in League One, preferring to focus on his Norfolk-based Formula One outfit.

The 47-year-old Air Asia founder - said to be worth more than £185million - said in the Norwich Evening News: "We talked, we talked definitely and there was a whole emotional appeal of everything Norfolk and green and yellow and it made sense. There's no reason why we can't work together in the future and do things together."

Norwich this month secured historic back-to-back promotions to return to the Barclays Premier League.

"I'm thrilled at what's happened at Norwich - and I've also got to know my own capabilities in life and you don't want to give yourself indigestion," added Fernandes, who failed in an attempt to buy West Ham at the start of 2010.

"It's fun - I tried to buy West Ham and failed and it was probably the best thing that ever happened to me."

A Hammers fan, Fernandes also revealed following the club's relegation that he was in discussions to invest in them.
