Norwich City have confirmed the appointment of Dean Smith as their new manager.

Smith signed a two-and-a-half year deal to replace Daniel Farke at Carrow Road.

Recall that Smith was recently dismissed by Aston Villa.

City confirmed the news in a statement via their website on Monday morning.

Reacting to his appointment, Smith told City’s official website, “It has been a whirlwind seven days, but I’m really pleased to be back and working for Norwich City in the Premier League.

“Clearly, there has been some wonderful work that has gone into this football club over the last four and a half years. It is now the job of myself and Craig to continue and improve on that work with the ultimate aim of surviving in the Premier League.

“Norwich City is a big club, with a massive hardcore of supporters who are fully understanding in what it means to be part of the club and its community.”
