Norwich refuses to accept Lamberts resignation
Updated Thursday, 31st May 2012
Norwich manager Paul Lambert has offered his resignation from the Premier League outfit but club officials have refused to accept it, it was confirmed on Thursday.
Norwich said in a statement it would not accept Lambert's resignation whilst "discussions with another club are taking place".
Lambert reportedly handed in his resignation late Wednesday after the club rebuffed a request by Aston Villa to open talks with the highly rated Scottish manager.
"The club regrets to confirm that Paul Lambert has offered his resignation from his position as Norwich City manager," the Carrow Road side said in a statement.
"We have fought hard to keep Paul at Norwich City and have not accepted his resignation whilst discussions with another club are taking place.
"However whatever happens we want to place on record our sincere gratitude for everything Paul has done for the Club over the last three fantastic seasons."
