Current Fleetwood Town manager Uwe Rosler is set to become the new boss of Championship side Norwich City, according to Sunday’s print edition of The Sun.

Rosler is the current odds-on favourite to be the new Norwich manager and looks set to take over but still has a lot to play for this season with Fleetwood Town.  The club sit third in the League One table, 10 points behind leaders Sheffield United but nine points clear of seventh place.  The club are looking to win promotion to the Championship, which would be their seventh promotion in just 13 years.

Rosler has exceeded everyone’s expectations with Fleetwood this season, taking a club that finished 19th last season and turning them into promotion contenders.  This success has not gone unnoticed however, with Rosler being linked to Huddersfield Town earlier in the season and now Norwich City.

Rosler’s first job in English football was with Brentford, and he almost took the club up before leaving to join Wigan Athletic before the end of the season.  Rosler was sacked after less than a year in charge and followed this up with an even shorter spell in charge of Leeds United.

However, the German has had a fantastic season in charge of Fleetwood and now looks set to move on to Norwich City.

Huddersfield Town’s current Head of Football Operations, Stuart Webber, is understood to be a big fan of Rosler.  Webber wanted to bring Rosler to Huddersfield should boss David Wagner leave the club, but now looks set to bring him to Norwich instead.

Webber will join Norwich from Huddersfield shortly to take up the Director of Football role and will make appointing Rosler as manager his first task.  Rosler is understood to be leaving Fleetwood this summer whether they are promoted or not.
