Norwich joint majority shareholder Delia Smith admits that the club’s return to the Premier League feels like a dream.

Victory at Portsmouth on Monday night confirmed the Carrow Road outfit’s place in the Championship’s top two and a spot back in the top flight next season.

Manager Paul Lambert has now guided Norwich to back-to-back promotions since taking over a League One side in 2009.

And Delia confesses to being “absolutely ecstatic”, as she said: “What an amazing two years we have had.

“Paul has done a terrific job. He is the tops - and a brilliant manager.

“I’m absolutely ecstatic. I really can’t believe this.

“I am wondering whether I will wake up in the morning and all this has not happened.”
