Norwich are looking at the possibility of bringing Neil Lennon in as manager over the summer, as a replacement for Chris Hughton, reports the Daily Record.

Chris Hughton has been linked with being removed from his position for the majority of the season. Poor performances on the pitch has lead to disgruntled fans wanting to see a change at the helm.

Hughton hasn't been aided by the poor returns of his squad, especially the new summer signings of Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Leroy Fer and Gary Hooper. Norwich are currently hovering one point above the relegation zone.

David McNally, Norwich's Scottish chief executive, hinted that Hughton's time may be running out. He told reporters: "You look at the marker and who might be right. It would be a case of reviewing what is required, where are we going and who is best placed to take the club forward."

Lennon's Celtic side are unbeaten in the Scottish Premier League, 21 points ahead of nearest challengers Aberdeen. The Northern Irish former international insists he is happy at Celtic despite claims of off-field incidents causing him to consider his future.

The opportunity to reunite with former striker Gary Hooper and the chance to manage in the Premier League may persuade Lennon to leave the Scottish Champions.
