Norwich are confident manager Paul Lambert will agree a new contract this week.

The 41-year-old Scot, who attracted an official approach from Burnley earlier in the season and is a reported target for managerless West Ham, has been in lengthy discussions with the board over improvements to his rolling 12-month deal.

Norwich deputy chairman Michael Foulger revealed those negotiations are now close to a satisfactory completion, telling BBC Radio Norfolk: "Can I just say there'll be some great news regarding the manager situation that we will hope to announce this week."

He added: "This success to me rates as the very best in my time as a board director.


"We don't have any superstars, but what we did have was a fantastic group with a tremendous team spirit and those lads would run through a brick wall for the manager."

The Canaries are set to return to the Barclays Premier League for the first time since 2005 after securing back-to-back promotions under Lambert, who took charge in August 2009 with the Norfolk club near the foot of League One.
