Former Norwich winger Darren Huckerby feels the success Paul Lambert brought to Carrow Road made it inevitable he would move on.

Lambert, 42, took the Canaries up from npower League One after being brought in from Colchester in August 2009, and then immediately on into the Barclays Premier League, where they finished a creditable 12th place. He is understood to now be in the running for the vacant Aston Villa role.

Huckerby - who played 174 times for Norwich, can understand why Lambert has been linked with other clubs, and he told TalkSPORT: "Eventually with his record and what he has done at Norwich, it looked like someone would poach him - but that is football, it has always been the same, when managers do well, they move on."
