Factfile: Danel Sinani

10 April 2020

Norwich City announced the signing of Danel Sinani on Friday evening, who will join the club at the start of next season.

We’ve taken a look at his football career so far and spoken to the man himself to find out more about the latest recruit.

Sinani is 23 years old and plays mostly as an attacking midfielder. However, as he told canaries.co.uk in his first interview with the Club, he’s more than capable of slotting into any position among the attack.

“I often also play as a right winger, and sometimes as a striker, but my position I typically play in is at number ten,” he said.

“Compared to last season, this season I’ve been more like a striker. I scored more goals than last year, and I think I’ve improved myself in terms of how to be stronger in the box.”

Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Sinani moved to Luxembourg at the age of five, where he has spent his life since then, beginning his senior career at Racing-Union. He was there for three years, scoring 15 goals in 72 games.

2017 saw Sinani make the switch to fellow National Division side F91 Dudelange, for whom he now boasts 30 goals in 61 games, including the first ever goal for a Luxembourgish club in the group stage of a major European competition when he struck against Olympiacos in the Europa League. Sinani also featured against Real Betis and AC Milan in that group.

In fact, across Champions League qualifiers and Europa League games (group stage and qualifiers), Sinani has made 29 appearances with Dudelange and scored 13 goals. That includes November’s brace against five-time Europa League winners Sevilla.

Sinani also has two league titles to his name, having joined Dudelange halfway through their run of four consecutive National Division wins in Luxembourg.

At international level, Sinani has made 21 senior appearances for Luxembourg, and scored three goals in their 2018-19 UEFA Nations League group.
