Norwich City are set to add Huddersfield Town coach Narcis Pelach to David Wagner’s first-team coaching staff, according to reports.

The Second Tier Podcast are claiming the highly-rated 34-year-old will be confirmed as the latest member of Wagner’s backroom team ahead of pre-season after sporting director Stuart Webber teased the addition of a new coach in his round of interviews on Friday.

Pelach would join Wagner’s team which currently consists of assistant head coach Christoph Buhler, first-team coach Andrew Hughes and goalkeeping coach Ed Wootten.

It's believed Norwich do hold an interest in the Spaniard, who remains under contract at Huddersfield, as they step up their search for a new coaching addition. 

The Spaniard has previously enjoyed a 17-year spell with Spanish side Girona prior to moving to the John Smith’s Stadium back in 2020 after joining Carlos Corberan at Leeds United for a brief spell as well as working at Premier League champions Manchester City.

He moved to Huddersfield as an assistant to Corberan but took the decision not to join his compatriot at West Brom and remained in Yorkshire after his resignation last summer, instead assisting Danny Schofield during his short stint in charge.

Pelach has also had brief spells as head coach of Spanish third tier sides UE Figueres and Peralada, as well as serving as Huddersfield interim boss in February before Neil Warnock’s appointment as manager.

He remained part of Warnock’s coaching team alongside Ronnie Jepson that guided Huddersfield to Championship safety in spectacular fashion against the odds. Reports earlier this month suggested relegated Blackpool have interviewed him for their vacant managerial position.

But Pelach could now be now set to join Norwich – with the final details currently being ironed out and an official announcement of their new coach set to arrive later this week.

Hughes is set to vacate his title as City’s loans development manager with those responsibilities set to be absorbed by another internal staff member in due course.

The report adds that Huddersfield’s head of goalkeeping Paul Clements turned down the chance to join City’s technical staff.
