Hughton unveiled as Norwich boss
Norwich City have named Chris Hughton as their new manager and the new boss says he hopes to keep Grant Holt at Carrow Road.
Lambert left the club on June 2 and the Canaries have acted quickly to bring in a replacement. Hughton has decided to leave Championship side Birmingham, who he led to the play-off semi-finals last season, to take charge at Carrow Road. Birmingham City have confirmed a compensation package has been agreed for Hughton, and the new Canaries boss will be joined at Norwich by assistant manager Colin Calderwood, first-team coach Paul Trollope and chief scout Ewan Chester, who also depart St Andrew's. Hughton, who also guided Newcastle to the Championship title in 2010, was unveiled by Norwich on Thursday and the 53-year-old is confident he can help the club progress. He told a press conference: "It's good to be here and I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead." The new Norwich boss also confirmed he hopes to keep hold of striker Grant Holt, who recently saw a transfer request rejected, and added: "I would like to have him here."
