Exclusive: Norwich City Plot Summer Move to Appoint Tottenham Manager Tim Sherwood as New Canaries Boss

Posted by

Carrow Road side look to tempt former player into returning to his former club to sit in Canaries hot-seat.

Norwich City will approach Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood this summer as they look to bring in a long term replacement for recently axed manager Chris Hughton.

CaughtOffside understands that the Carrow Road side are closely monitoring Sherwood’s situation, with speculation rife that the 45 year old will be relieved of his duties by White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy at the end of the current campaign.

Though Levy is keen to retain Sherwood’s services the former Norwich City player may be tempted by a return to the club, especially if they avoid relegation to the Championship.

Hughton was fired last Sunday and youth team coach Neil Adams has taken the reins as Norwich City prepare for five tough fixtures that will make or break their season.

Norwich City currently sit five points clear of the relegation zone though will face the side directly below them, Fulham this weekend before finishing the season with matches against Liverpool, Man United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Sherwood spent three years at Norwich City prior to his move to Blackburn Rovers, who he led to a Premier League title in 1994/95.

Tim Sherwood has experienced some significant ups and downs during his short tenure as Andre Villas-Boas’s replacement at Tottenham but his overall record of ten wins, two draws and five defeats in the 17 Premier League matches in charge of the North London club is by no means a poor record though some may feel his approach has at times been a little unorthodox.
