Villa close in on Lambert appointment

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa are hopeful of announcing Paul Lambert as their new manager within the next 24 hours, Press Association Sport understands.

Villa remain confident of securing Lambert as Alex McLeish's successor even though Norwich refused to accept his resignation on Thursday. The midlands club are ready to pay the compensation demands of the Canaries for Lambert, who has a rolling contract at Carrow Road.

The Scot has held talks with Villa, who are optimistic any loose ends can be tied up sooner rather than later. Lambert will then be charged by club owner Randy Lerner with the task of revitalising Villa after two seasons in the doldrums.
