Dean Smith will be the new Norwich City head coaching coach.

Final details are being worked out for Daniel Farke to succeed Farke as ex-Aston Villa boss. Farke was fired by the Canaries on Saturday.

Craig Shakespeare, who was a Villa employee, will be Smith's assistant. An announcement is expected on Sunday or Monday.

Frank Lampard, former Chelsea boss, had withdrawn from the race for the vacant position.

The next Premier League match for Norwich is at Southampton on 20 November.

After accumulating just five points in 11 games, the Canaries are now bottom of Premier League.

Smith will soon return to the dugout after Villa fired him on 7 November, three years after he was in charge.

He was their manager and led them to promotion from Championship in his first season. The Carabao Cup final was held in 2019-20. They also finished 11th in the Premier League last year.
