Norwich City have held talks with former Reims and Beerschot boss Will Still over their head coach vacancy.

It's understood that the 31-year-old visited the Canaries' Lotus Training Centre early this week, although he remains one of a number of coaches under consideration with City still in the early stages of their search.

Other candidates are expected to be consulted, with more visits expected at Colney. 

Sporting director Ben Knapper has had dealings with Still previously when he was Arsenal's loans manager, with former Gunners talent Folarin Balogun playing under Still during the 2022-23 season.

Still mutually agreed to leave Ligue 1 Reims earlier this month, after their season tailed off with just two wins in 14. He's already made a significant name for himself in management, however, having taken charge of Belgian Pro League side Beerschot aged just 28.

He was the focus of widespread media attention during his time at Reims as he coached despite lacking a UEFA Pro License, with the club fined €25,000 for every game he took charge of until he started a monthly course near Brussels.

The Belgian-born Englishman was also well known for being a fan of popular game Football Manager, admitting that it played a big part in his obsession with the game at a younger age.

Other coaches reportedly in the frame include Dutchman Pascal Jansen, who is known for his attractive style of football and was in post at AZ Alkmaar until his January sacking, as well as Nordsjaelland's Johannes Hoff Thorup.

There could be difficulties securing a work permit for the Dane, although he is liked as a coach behind the scenes at Norwich. Talks where held with Carlos Cuesta last autumn, but interest in the Arsenal assistant has cooled.

Former Hull head coach Liam Rosenior has also been linked with the vacancy, after Knapper said he would go in a "different direction" with this appointment.

“We remain committed to progressing our football club, in both the short and long-term, working through a diligent and thorough strategy," he said in the club's statement on David Wagner's sacking.

“The appointment of a new head coach is an important one. We will now work and continue our due diligence with the view of making an appointment in the near future.”
