Webber Bolsters Norwich's Backroom Team With Two New Appointments

Chris Badlan has left one of Webber’s former clubs, Wolves, and is poised to be officially unveiled in the coming days to spearhead the Norwich’s revamped European scouting network, with another ex-Wolves colleague, Kieran Scott, also set to join Norwich as the club's head of UK recruitment.

The new appointments come just over a week after Webber sanctioned a trio of exits from the backroom set up at Carrow Road, headed by former technical director Ricky Martin, who along with Lee Darnbrough and Tony Spearing were key figures in the recruitment set-up under previous manager Alex Neil.

Badlan confirmed on Saturday evening he had left his post at Molineux as head of emerging talent, which he had occupied in the West Midlands since October 2015, after Webber managed to entice him away from Paul Lambert’s club, where he had spent the past six years.

Scott, most recently, had been part of Mark Warburton’s scouting system at Rangers but prior to that was head of recruitment at Wolves for the junior age groups.
