The permanent return of German midfielder Moritz Leitner has been met with huge approval by Norwich City fans this evening.
The Canaries have confirmed the 25-year-old’s return for an undisclosed fee, with the former Germany Under-21 international committing to a four-year contract.
Leitner made 12 appearances while on loan from Bundesliga side Augsburg during the second half of last season and did enough to persuade head coach Daniel Farke to want him to return.

Sporting director Stuart Webber has now been able to secure a deal for the former Borussia Dortmund and Lazio player.
He will join permanently upon the expiry of his initial loan spell in July, and becomes City’s second signing of the summer transfer window, following the £1.5m arrival of Emi Buendia from Getafe.
