Lambert named Aston Villa boss

Paul Lambert has been appointed the new manager of Aston Villa after leaving Norwich City.

Lambert tendered his resignation this week in an attempt to push through a move to Villa, who have been looking for a manager since Alex McLeish was relieved of his duties last month.

Norwich prohibited Lambert from talking to Villa earlier this week and therefore refused his resignation in light of not being allowed to discuss a move to the Villans.

It appears, though, that a compromise has been reached which will see the Scottish boss move from East Anglia to the Midlands and take charge of a side that finished perilously close to the relegation zone, in 16th place, last season.

A statement on Villa’s official website on Saturday read: “The board of Aston Villa are delighted to confirm that Paul Lambert has been appointed Villa manager.”

Norwich are believed to be discussing a compensation package for Lambert’s services but it is understood that the one-million-pound figure quoted is being dismissed by Villa officials, who believe that the sum is void due to a clause in his contract that allowed him to speak to another Premier League club.

Lambert was instrumental in Norwich’s rise from League One to the Premier League in two seasons and then guided the Canaries to a 12th-placed finish in their first year back in the top flight.
