Dennis Srbeny: Fans were major pull for me

25 January 2018

New Norwich City striker Dennis Srbeny is ready to live out his 'dream' in front of the club's supporters after signing a three-and-a-half year deal with the Canaries.

The 23-year-old completed a switch from German third tier side SC Paderborn on Thursday, realising one of his major career aspirations in the process.

"It's been a dream for me to play in England," he told Norwich City TV.

"The fans, the stadium and the atmosphere was the reason I decided on Norwich. I think we can make big things here.

"The coach being German like me will make it easier to understand what he wants. We had a good talk and he told me about his plan with football.

"It's the same plan as me. I want to be in a team which plays with the ball."

Although Srbeny's literal journey to Norfolk hasn't been a flawless one, the forward is hungry to make an immediate impression at his new club.

"It's happened quickly," he explained, when reflecting on how the move played out.

"I got a call yesterday [Tuesday] and flew here today [Wednesday]; the flight was okay but my luggage is not here!  Maybe it's in China or Australia, I don't know, but I'm here!

"I just want to play football and show what I can do. I'm a player who can pass the last ball. I like to play for my team and I've shown I can score goals and assist goals. 

"There are a few German players here already who can talk with me and help me to settle in."
