Norwich City loanee Billy Gilmour has taken the departed Mario Vrancic's number eight shirt for the new 2021/22 season.

The Canaries released their squad numbers on Monday afternoon, with Chelsea youngster Gilmour taking the number eight and big-money summer signing Milot Rashica claiming Emi Buendia's old number 17.

Ben Gibson takes over the number four shirt that was Ben Godfrey's. French midfielder Pierre Lees-Melou will wear the number 20 shirt.

The likes of Timm Klose and Tom Trybull have not been allocated a shirt number, with the duo not part of Daniel Farke's Premier League plans.

The Canaries step up their pre-season preparations against Gillingham at Carrow Road on Tuesday. The Premier League season begins at home to Liverpool on August 14.
