The Daniel Farke factor was a big pull for Norwich City new boy Josip Drmic.
The Swiss international free agent will officially link up with his new club on July 1, after agreeing a three-year deal to cut his ties with the Bundesliga.
Drmic felt the time was right to leave Germany, following a six-year stint, but had plenty of other offers before opting to join Farke's squad.
"We are on the same level," he said. "He is a very interesting person and I think he has done a great job and I am happy I can work with him.
"After six years in Germany, I'm looking forward to a new adventure. The Premier League is the best league in the world, with the best players. It's cool that I can now compete with them all."
