Norwich City have agreed a deal with Luxembourg international forward Danel Sinani.
Sinani has signed a pre-contract agreement with the club which will see him join the Canaries from Luxembourg side F91 Dudelange ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
The 23-year-old has signed a three-year contract at Norwich that will run through to the summer of 2023.
Sinani has an impressive goal-scoring record throughout the current season, netting 14 goals in 16 league games.
Sinani has won the national title in Luxembourg for each of the last two seasons and caught the eye in this season’s UEFA Europa League, scoring four goals in group stage matches against APOEL Nicosia and Sevilla.
Born in Belgrade, Serbia, the forward started his senior playing career at RFCU Luxembourg back in 2014, before joining his current club Dudelange in July 2017.
His agreement to join the Canaries will be the first time Sinani plays professional football outside of Luxembourg.
Speaking exclusively to canaries.co.uk, Sinani said: “Norwich is a very big club with many good players. I will try to do my best and try to continue to hopefully score goals and to help the team to get in a high position.
“I’ve heard a lot of good things about Norwich City and I’m really excited to join you guys in the summer.
“For me, the most important thing in our situation is that you’re keeping well and keeping safe.”
Head Coach Daniel Farke said: “We’re all happy that we’re able to sign Danel. He’s a young player full of potential.
“He’s pretty interesting because he can play more or less all offensive positions. He also has great ability in terms of end product, scoring many goals and delivering many assists.
“Luxembourg is a completely different level so we will need to give him some time, but he has proven he can deliver in the Europa League. It’s a sign of our way that we give interesting talents the chance to impress.”
