The squad numbers for Norwich City’s players have been confirmed for the new season, with Tom Trybull, Mo Leitner and Josip Drmic not given numbers ahead of their expected exits.

There are few surprises to take note of, with City having already confirmed that striker Jordan Hugill would be taking the vacant number nine shirt.

Teemu Pukki sticks with 22 but Onel Hernandez has vacated 11 to return to the 25 he has previously worn in the Championship, with summer signing Przemyslaw Placheta taking 11.

Kieran Dowell takes 10 from Leitner, Danish midfielder Jacob Sorensen succeeds Trybull at 19 and Tottenham loanee Oliver Skipp takes Drmic’s previous squad number of 20.

Academy prospect Josh Martin has been bumped up the order from 56 to 24 after his emergence as a first team competitor in recent months but Adam Idah sticks with 35.

The Canaries have confirmed the squad numbers ahead of Saturday’s trip to Luton Town in the first round of the League Cup.

Head coach Daniel Farke confirmed last week that Trybull, Leitner and Drmic are not in his plans for the new season, as part of a revamp of his squad following relegation from the Premier League.
