Norwich won't discuss manager candidates

Norwich City refused to speculate on questions over the likely identity of their next manager - after former Wigan boss Paul Jewell emerged as the early favourite to succeed Peter Grant.

Chief executive Neil Doncaster refused to comment on reports that bookies' choice Jewell had already been sounded out over the post.

But, just as he did 12 months ago, Doncaster said there would be no comment on candidates until an appointment was made.

"Speculation about individuals at this stage is not helpful and we won't engage in it," he said.

"There is going be that sort of speculation over the weeks ahead. That is part of football. I'm not going to be drawn on any name whatsoever.

"When we've got something to report we'll report it, but names being linked to Norwich City Football Club we will not comment on."
