Norwich have revealed they are yet to agree financial compensation with Aston Villa after Paul Lambert's switch to the West Midlands club was confirmed.

Lambert succeeds Alex McLeish, who was sacked following the final game of the season, to become the fourth boss at Villa Park in less than two years.

Villa confirmed Lambert's appointment as their new manager on their website, however, Norwich released a statement which revealed the deal has not been fully finalised.

It said: "Following today's announcement by Aston Villa that they have appointed Paul Lambert as their new manager, we would once again like to place on record our sincere gratitude to Paul for everything he has done for the club.

"Everybody at Carrow Road wishes him all the best for the future.

"Some media reports are suggesting we have agreed compensation for Paul's services with Aston Villa, however this is not the case.

"We will continue to discuss this matter privately with Aston Villa."
