Norwich have confirmed that assistant manager Lee Clark is set to join League One side Huddersfield as their new manager.
Clark is in advanced talks with the Terriers to replace Stan Ternent and the Canaries have confirmed an undisclosed compensation payment has been agreed.
Manager Glenn Roeder told the club's official website www.canaries.co.uk: "In the last few days Huddersfield have formally asked for permission to speak to Lee, which after chatting to him and the board, we agreed to do."
He continued: "We've made it clear we would expect compensation for a man of Lee's experience and potential and that has been agreed.
"I always knew from day one when I first appointed Lee as reserve-team coach at Newcastle how ambitious he was to become a manager one day so he goes with my best wishes and big thanks for the part he played last year in helping the club to secure its Championship status."
