I have a feeling this will be no long drawn out saga.
Update 14:37 – As soon as I typed it the statement has been released – LINK
In brief he has handed in his resignation but it has been rejected. This could be a play on Norwich’s part to get more cash but if you wish to resign then what can they really do about it. If has reported he is on a rolling contract then he can break that at any time.
As they own statement confirms they are in discussions with us and when we give them the cash, he will be ours.
14:35 – We have been told that a Norwich city club statement is due soon.
This statement can only be to confirm that Lambert has resigned and will no longer be the Norwich manager. I expect then the whole deal for him at Villa to possibly be agreed as early as this evening if not tomorrow. Remember this stage of the process is always the last stage of it.
Lambert would never have resigned if he was not agreeable with the terms and conditions we were offering.
