Norwich City supporters continue to patiently wait for news of a managerial appointment, with Alex Neil having recently been relieved of his managerial duties, although the Canaries board are taking their time with regard to a new man at the helm.
Paul Heckingbottom became the new favourite for the job over the weekend, although Uwe Rosler has leapt to the head of the market, with the German now 1/3 with Sky Bet to replace Neil. Rosler is currently in charge at Fleetwood Town and has done really well with the League One club this year, steering them into the top six and within touching distance of an automatic promotion spot.
Rosler is a pretty experienced manager in English football, having enjoyed spells at Brentford and Wigan Athletic, with the Norwich board clearly open to to the prospect of him returning to the Championship and hopefully steering the club back to the top flight.
Norwich are still eligible for several further parachute payments and are carefully considering their option, with Paddy Power offering a best price 4/7 about Rosler.
Heckingbottom has now gone out to 8/1 (BetVictor) and looks less likely to leave Barnsley where he has steered the Yorkshire club from League One to the Championship, while caretaker boss Alan Irvine is a 12/1 shot and also looks simply a stopgap replacement rather than anything permanent.
It very much looks as though Rosler will be given the opportunity to manage Norwich despite having been at Fleetwood for a relatively short amount of time, with the League One club unlikely to be able to stop him leaving.
