Canaries manager Neil Adams has resigned as club manager.

The club announced his departure in a tweet early this afternoon.

He took over the job in May 2014, First Team Coach Mike Phelan will be in charge until a new manager's picked. 

It's after the Canary's 2-0 defeat on Saturday by League One Preston in the FA Cup third round, they're now seventh in the league table. 

Neil Adams said: “I firmly believe that we are still on course for a crack at promotion back to the Premier League. That is where this club belongs. 
"However, I feel it is in the best interests of the team that an immediate change is made in order to ensure a positive impact on results."

Adams will take a break from the game before returning to work for the club in July, in a role to be confirmed at a later date.
