Former Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett is interested in becoming Norwich City’s next manager according to Sky Sports sources.

The Canaries are looking for a new boss after sacking former manager Alex Neil on Friday evening following a poor run of results.

After hearing news of Neil’s sacking, many Norwich City fans expressed their hopes that the club would appoint Rowett as their new manager on social media and it now looks as though their hopes could become reality.

It has been reported that Rowett would like to be considered for the role with the 43-year-old ready to return to management after being controversially sacked by former club Birmingham City in December.

Rowett transformed The Blues from a relegation threatened outfit into Play Off chasers in the Sky Bet Championship and would be backed by Norwich City fans to turn around their club’s fortunes if appointed at Carrow Road.

Rowett started his managerial career with Burton Albion and he built a side capable of challenging for promotion from Sky Bet League Two at The Pirelli Stadium. The former defender was appointed Birmingham City boss in October 2014 and achieved a respectable 39.60% win rate in charge of The Blues.

A number of Sky Bet Championship clubs have been linked with moves for Rowett however he has insisted that he will wait for the right opportunity before returning to management.
