The Canaries, who dropped out of the top flight after three years in the Premier League, sacked manager Chris Hughton in April.

Hughton's temporary replacement Neil Adams has been in charge since April 6, but managed to pick up just one point from five matches, although he remains in contention for the post.

A Norwich statement read: "Everyone at Norwich City shares our fans' deep disappointment that we have been unable to secure Premier League status for a fourth consecutive season, despite the best efforts of players and staff at Carrow Road and Colney.

"We'd like to thank our fantastic supporters for their unswerving and passionate backing home and away in what has been a very challenging season for everyone connected with Norwich City. As always, the 'Yellow Army' has been a credit to their football club and to the county of Norfolk.

"The board fully accepts that mistakes have been made which have contributed to our relegation.

"It is always our stated strategy to improve the squad in every transfer window. We backed the manager with the funds to sign a number of players this season with every intention of improving the squad, but unfortunately that improvement did not materialise.

"Work is already under way to learn from the experiences of this season and to prepare for a busy summer as we focus all of our energies and resources on competing in the Sky Bet Championship next season.

"The next step is to confirm who will be our manager next season and this process is under way now. Neil Adams, who has done an admirable job in difficult circumstances, is one of a number of candidates the board is talking to.

"The board will confirm who our manager will be in the 2014-15 season in a statement to supporters within a week."

England call-up for Clyne

T

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.

ou make a lot of good points, but I still find myself instinctively against anything that makes it easier for Paul Ince to get managerial roles
