Leeds United-linked Ed Wootten set to leave Norwich City with announcement timeline revealed
Ed Wootten is reportedly set to leave Norwich City amid links with a potential reunion with Daniel Farke who’s taken charge at Leeds United.
According to Pink Un journalist Paddy Davitt, the goalkeeping coach is set to leave the Carrow Road outfit.
It’s understood that a replacement for him is already lined up and an announcement could be made in the next 24 hours.
Via Twitter, Davitt wrote, “Norwich City keeper coach Ed Wootten set to leave the club. They have a replacement lined up.
“Likely officially announced next 24 hours.
“Wootten tipped with a Farke reunion at Leeds United.”
Getting the old guard back together
Farke achieved great success at Carrow Road so it makes sense that he’s turning to the backroom staff that worked well with him there.
He’s certainly going to want more coaches and it seems like Wootten is going to be his next appointment unless his exit is a mere coincidence.
It remains to be seen how much compensation Norwich will be demanding as he’s still under contract at Carrow Road.
Leeds will be backing Farke this summer and that also means bringing in the coaches that he wants to work with at Elland Road.
Whites’ goalkeeping coach Marcos Abad parted ways with the club once Farke joined so it’s evident the German wanted to bring in his own coach.
Once Norwich make an announcement, there’s a high possibility of Leeds doing the same as well.
