Timm Klose remained in individual training as Norwich City stepped up their preparations for Friday night’s clash with high-flying Leicester in training at Colney.

The Switzerland international defender is hoping to return to full team training soon as he makes his way back from a serious knee injury.

However, Klose was restricted to individual ball work with City coaches separate from the bulk of the squad, but did appear to be moving well as he ran through defensive work and heading drills.
