Roy Hodgson emerges as candidate for Norwich City manager's job?

The former England national boss Roy Hodgson is reportedly considering taking the manager's vacancy at Norwich City.

The 69-year-old has been clear about his openness to return to management after he stepped down as England boss last summer.

Hodgson announced his resignation immediately after the Three Lions were knocked out of the European Championship by minnows Iceland in France.

According to reports today in The Mirror, Hodgson is an option for Norwich, who parted company with Alex Neil last Friday, and is also known to be a long term friend of club owner Delia Smith having been spotted in the directors box with her earlier in the season at Carrow Road.

It is understood that the former West Bromwich Albion boss, who reportedly spoke to Leicester City about becoming Claudio Ranieri's successor, is mulling over the possibility of taking over at Carrow Road.

The report goes on to add that Norwich were interested in speaking to Gary Rowett, but the former Birmingham City boss is said to be on the verge of joining Derby County.
