Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan would welcome the appointment of Paul Lambert as the club's new manager.
Lambert is in negotiations with Villa while the midlands club work on a compensation package with the 42-year-old's current club Norwich.
Scotland international Bannan, 22, believes Lambert's managerial history would make him an ideal candidate.
"If it is him then that will be good," Bannan told Sky Sports News.
"He has done very well with Norwich and the clubs he was at before then. He has a good record up until now so hopefully if it is Lambert he can be as success with us as he has with his previous teams."
