Daniel Farke's squad will wrap up their week-long stay in Germany next month with a friendly against Bundesliga club Wolfsburg.

The German top flight outfit announced the friendly on Friday afternoon, with the game scheduled to take place on July 19.

City later confirmed the fixture, although no venue or ticket information has yet been released. Timm Klose was signed from the former Champions League contenders in 2016, who needed to win a relegation play-off over Holstein Kiel to secure their top fligt status for 2018/19.

Norwich have also provisionally arranged friendlies on the same trip against Paderborn on July 15 and FC Union Berlin on Tuesday July 17, with venues, times and ticket information for all three matches to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, City's Under-23s will also face three friendlies as part of the tour with further details to be confirmed in due course.
