Norwich plan to scour the continent for their new manager after Cardiff boss Malky Mackay dropped out of the reckoning.

Mackay, who played over 200 times for Norwich during a six-year spell at Carrow Road, was one of several names linked with the manager's position following Paul Lambert's move to Aston Villa last week.

The Cardiff manager has now insisted that he is happy with the Welsh club, however, despite being "flattered" by the Canaries' apparent interest. In a statement released by his agent, he said: "I have started a long-term project and want to stay and finish it."
