Norwich have verbal agreement with Wagner to become new head coach

Norwich City have a verbal agreement with ex-Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner to become their new head coach.

Contracts have yet to be signed, but the 51-year-old should be in place to take charge of the team for the first time on Sunday when Norwich host Blackburn in the FA Cup third round.

The former Schalke boss is available immediately having been sacked by Young Boys in Switzerland in March despite the team sitting second in the Swiss Super League.

Sky Sports News has been told Norwich interviewed four candidates for the role, following the sacking of Dean Smith last month.

But Wagner's experience in getting Huddersfield promoted from the Championship and then keeping them in the Premier League the following season was a key factor in his favour.

Wagner knows Norwich's sporting director Stuart Webber well - the pair worked closely for two years at Huddersfield, when they won promotion.
