David Wagner is weighing up his next career move should Huddersfield miss out on Premier League promotion.
The Terriers face a make-or-break Championship play-off semi-final, second leg at Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday after a goalless first leg in West Yorkshire, with the victors set to face Reading at Wembley on May 29.
The Sun report on Wednesday Wagner, long touted with the Norwich City head coach vacancy, is ready to quit the club if Town fall short in their play-off quest. Canaries’ sporting director Stuart Webber brought Wagner to Huddersfield and the duo forged a formidable partnership that saw Huddersfield defy expectations to finish in the top six this past season.
Webber wants to install Norwich’s new head coach by the end of the month, with Wagner currently 7/2 second favourite behind Uwe Rosler with Sky Bet to replace Alex Neil.
Wagner plotted a league double over the Canaries and snubbed reported interest from Wolfsburg in the January transfer window but City and recently-relegated Middlesbrough are reportedly keen on the German. The Sun, however, claim Terriers’ chairman Dean Hoyle is determined to prevent Wagner joining a Football League rival this summer.
