Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs is currently the second favourite to become Norwich City’s new head coach according to the latest odds provided by the English Football League’s betting partners Sky Bet.

The 43-year-old Welshman has been out of work since leaving his post as assistant manager at Old Trafford last summer following former United boss Louis Van Gaal’s exit.

Roy Hodgson is the current favourite for the Carrow Road hotseat however the former England boss has ruled himself out of the running for the job possibly leaving Giggs in pole position for the role.

Norwich City sacked former manager Alex Neil prior to last weekend’s home fixture with Blackburn Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship following a poor run of results. The club is undergoing a restructure and it is believed that the Canaries board will now look to appoint a sporting director and first team head coach who will work alongside managing director Steve Stone.

Alan Irvine is currently in interim charge of Norwich City and the Scot has so far produced a win and a draw from his two matches at the helm at Carrow Road. The 58-year-old has admitted that he has no desire to take the job on a permanent basis unless the board offer him the position.

Norwich City are now likely to appoint a new head coach prior to their next fixture at Aston Villa on 1 April.
