Norwich Sign Marcel Franke

Norwich Sign Marcel Franke


Norwich City have announced their seventh signing of the summer in the form of Marcel Franke via canaries.co.uk



The 24 year old central defender is a 6`4" mountain of a man who has joined the Canaries from Bundesliga 2 side, Greuther Furth for an undisclosed fee on a three year deal with the option of a further year.

He is a product of Dynamo Dresden`s youth academy and made his debut for the first team there in 2010. In 2013, the lad joined Hallescher FC, making 68 appearances and scoring 6 goals before he joined Greuther Furth in 2015.

Franke told Norwich City TV: "It`s a big club in England with a great stadium and amazing supporters.

"It was an easy step for me. I had good conversations with the coach and he convinced me Norwich was the right club.

"I want to play football with the team so I`m looking forward to this.'

Head Coach Daniel Farke added: 'We were searching for some improvements in defence so I`m happy.

'He`s a really solid defender but also solid at building up our game. Marcel is a young guy at just 24 so has lots of potential but is also pretty experienced.

'I`m really glad to bring in a centre-back with this quality. He`s the perfect fit for our squad.'

Welcome to Norwich, Marcel.

Another defender with a reputation first and foremost for defending. It's really refreshing. Does anyone know how the German second tier compares to our own?

Totally impressed by Webber and Co. Has seriously improved the squad despite being financially constrained. Wonderful times ahead.
