Second ex-City star in the frame?

Former Norwich midfielder Ian Crook, currently working in Australia, has been linked with a return to Carrow Road.

Crook, assistant to Terry Butcher at Sydney FC, has a strong reputation down under but still has family in Norfolk, where he made over 400 appearances for the Canaries.

The 43-year-old has been touted as part of a management team with ex-teammate Mark Bowen, with whom he acknowledged he remains good friends.
