Mario Vrančić : I'm very proud to be joining

8 June 2017

MARIO Vrančić says he was quickly sold on the idea of becoming a Norwich City player after speaking with Head Coach Daniel Farke.

The Bosnian international is set to complete a switch from Bundesliga side SV Darmstadt 98 later this week, having agreed a deal until 2020 with the Canaries.

Discussing his new challenge with Norwich City TV, Vrančić said: "It’s a big move for me, having spent my whole career in Germany, but I’m happy to be joining.

"I had a good conversation with the coach. I’ve been here for a couple of days as well and after that I decided very quickly I wanted to be part of Norwich.

"I have a very good friend living in Frankfurt who lived in London for three years. I asked him about Norwich City and he said it would be a good move.

"It’s a good city with a good stadium, so there’s everything that you need. I’m really happy and very proud to soon be part of Norwich.

"Now I want to learn the English language as quickly as I can to acclimatise with everything here."

Explaining on his own terms what he will bring to City’s midfield, the 28-year-old added: "I have a good mix, a good eye for the game.

"I can defend as well as sometimes score and create goals. There is a little bit of everything. Having competition [for places] is normal in football and that’s good.

"I’ll try to play as many games as I can. The most important thing is I want to stay healthy and to help the team and the coach reach our goals. That’s very important."
