Smith, who swiftly emerged as The Canaries boss after parting company with Aston Villa last week, will be hoping for a reunion with the Irishman. 

Hourihane arrived at Villa Park a year before Smith, helping the Midlands club to promotion during the 2018/19 Championship campaign.

The 30-year-old started 18 times for Villa during their first season back in England’s top-flight, scoring three times and providing a further five assists.

Chipping in with five goals and two assists in 19 games with The Swans, Hourihane helped the South Wales club to a play-off place, but The Swans were unable to get past Brentford in the final.
