Norwich City have completed the signing of Luxembourg international Danel Sinani - with the winger penning a three-year deal with the club.

The 23-year-old will officially join up with City ahead of the 2020/21 season after signing a pre-contract agreement with the Canaries.

City’s interest in the winger can be tracked back to January, when reports of their interest were first made public. Sinani himself has spoken in great length about the progression of the deal, but City moved to announce it formally on Friday evening.

Sinani will join up with Daniel Farke’s squad in pre-season following the conclusion of the current campaign - which has been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The winger has been prolific in his domestic division, scoring 24 times in 30 appearances in all competitions this season for F91 Dudelange.
