Simon Grayson is the latest name to be linked with the manager's position at Norwich City.

The Seasiders boss is attracting the attention of other clubs after relentless success in his two years as Blackpool's chief.

He has taken the Tangerines from League One relegation candidates to Championship status in 21 months at the helm and was linked with the Leicester City job two months ago.

Reports suggest he may again be on the shortlist at the Walkers Stadium if Gary Megson departs to take over at Bolton.
