The signing of Switzerland international striker Josip Drmic has been welcomed as a potentially fine piece of transfer business by Norwich City supporters.

The 26-year-old will join the Canaries on July 1 after opting not to stay in Germany with Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach.

Drmic has scored 10 goals in 22 games at international level and recently featured as a substitute in both of Switzerland's games in the Uefa Nations League finals, having the decisive penalty saved by Jordan Pickford in the third-place play-off against England.

The former Zurich and Bayer Leverkusen forward endured an injury-hit last campaign at club level, scoring twice in five games for Gladbach to help secure Europa League qualification.

He has signed a three-year contract with the Canaries though, joining Daniel Farke's team for their return to the Premier League, to compete with star striker Teemu Pukki.
