Dimi Giannoulis’ Norwich City future will take care of itself if he maintains his Championship standard, for David Wagner.

The Greek international is out of contract at the end of the season, with no talks between the parties believed to be planned until the new year.

Wagner’s priority is winning league points, not getting Giannoulis on a longer term Carrow Road deal, ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Swansea City.

“We all, together, must make sure that we are focused on the games and everything in front of us. And not on a contract situation in October,” said the Norwich head coach. “But I'm very happy with what I've seen. Now it's all about consistency. Whether you are playing three games a week, or coming from the bench.

"We give them information, we tell them where we think they can improve. We work a lot with them on the video analysis, as well as on the grass. And then it's down to the players to take on board this information, to ask the right questions as well, if something is unclear or my explanation was not good enough.

“Dimi is an intelligent guy. He is very self-critical as well. He knows when he has done well and when not. And this is good if you can judge your own performance. But it is not about showing this for only two months. Can you show it for longer? I'm quite confident that he will do.”

Giannoulis has been an ever-present in the league this season to cement his status as first choice left-back.

“He demands a lot of himself and he has set the standard for not only himself, but all his competitors in that position. He still has a lot of space to improve,” said the German. “The idea of football we play suits him, but it suits him as well that he knows exactly what to do in ball possession, and without ball possession.

"He's very focused, very concentrated in the games. Sometimes in the past I was told, and I have seen sometimes as well, where he had moments when he lost concentration, and looked a little bit sloppy as well. Maybe we have seen this only in one game this season.”
