Norwich manager Paul Lambert has committed himself to the Canaries, despite Burnley's interest in the Scot. The Clarets on Thursday approached their npower Championship rivals for permission to speak to Lambert about their managerial vacancy. Norwich refused - and on Friday night Lambert insisted he is staying at Carrow Road. A statement from Lambert on the club's official website,, read: "I said last week there was nothing in the Burnley speculation. "I can't stop speculation linking me with other clubs but I've said on numerous occasions before that I am happy here and that is still the case. "The players and the fans have been tremendous for us since we joined here and what they have achieved over the last 16 months or so is absolutely phenomenal, as I keep saying. "I want to put the speculation to bed - I've never had any intention of going elsewhere and nothing has changed. All the speculation is wide of the mark and hopefully now the rumour mill about the Burnley job can focus elsewhere and we can all move on."
