Frank Lampard has pulled out of talks with Norwich City over the prospect of replacing Daniel Farke as their manager.

The Chelsea legend, who has not worked in management since leaving Stamford Bridge in January of this year, was in the running to take over at Carrow Road.

Chelsea’s record goalscorer is understood to be keen to return to frontline coaching, but has been waiting for the right opportunity.

And now Norwich will have to turn their focus elsewhere in the search to replace Farke, who was dismissed last on November 6.

Farke had only just steered Norwich to their first Premier League win of the season, a 2-1 victory at Brentford, when he was unseated by the Canaries’ board.

Norwich sit bottom of the table with just five points from 11 games, with Southampton up next on November 20.

Lampard secured Champions League football through a fourth-place league finish and took Chelsea to the FA Cup final, in his one full season at the Stamford Bridge helm.

The 106-cap midfielder was sacked after Chelsea slipped to ninth in the table the following campaign however, after the club had spent more than £200millon on a squad overhaul.

Former Aston Villa manager Dean Smith is understood to be among the remaining candidates for the Norwich job.
