Christos Tzolis faces a decisive week over his Norwich City future as he prepares for the play-offs with Fortuna Dusseldorf.

The Greek winger netted a sensational hat-trick in a 3-2 final-day victory over FC Magdeburg to secure the top goalscorer award in Bundesliga Two, having scored 22 times in 30 matches for the German side. 

Tzolis claimed the award alongside duo Robert Glatzel of Hamburg and Herta Berlin's Haris Tabakovic, who also scored 22 times. The on-loan City man enjoyed the best goals-to-game ratio to jointly claim the award. 

The Greek international is now entering a crucial period as he attempts to clarify his future. Dusseldorf will face Bundesliga side Bochum in the relegation play-off for a chance to play in the top-flight next season. 

If they can beat Bochum over two legs and win promotion, Dusseldorf's loan move for Tzolis will turn into a permanent one owing to the obligation clause in the move. 

Should Tzolis and Fortuna fail to go up, that becomes an option —with Dusseldorf unlikely to have the financial power to activate it, meaning the winger would return to Carrow Road but is generating plenty of interest from the Bundesliga.  

That outcome would give City more bargaining power and would likely see them cash in further on Tzolis, with the obligation believed to be worth around £5million. 

Tzolis shared his delight as winning the top goalscorer award as he looks to cap off a fine season at the Merkur Spiel-Arena on a high. 

"It's an extraordinary feeling for me to have won the game and to be one of the top scorers to belong to the league. Even before the game, I believed that I could score three goals today," Tzolis told Fortuna's official website.

"My teammates also believed in me and then it really happened. Without them this wouldn't have been possible. We also had the chance to score more goals. Now two difficult and close games await us.

"If we want to play in the Bundesliga, we also have to win against the teams from the Bundesliga. We are looking forward to the two games.”

Fortuna coach Daniel Thouiane confirmed that the club would likely have to achieve promotion to sign Tzolis permanently, telling RP: "A promotion would also increase the likelihood that we might see him in the Fortuna jersey again."
