Daniel Farke, the Norwich City head coach, is in advanced talks over a new contract, in a huge boost for the Championship league leaders.
Norwich are in negotiations with Farke over a two-and-a-half-year deal as they move to reward the German for the club’s impressive progress this season.
Farke, 42, is out of contract in June but is now poised to agree improved terms after guiding Norwich to the top of the division, two points ahead of Leeds United.
Norwich have been in talks with Farke’s advisors since the end of last year and have made good progress in recent weeks, with an announcement on the new contract expected soon. Farke’s assistant, Edmund Reimer, is also set to sign an extension.
Farke was appointed in May 2017 after leaving his post at Borussia Dortmund II and endured a difficult first campaign in English football, eventually guiding Norwich to a 14th-placed finish.
