Head coach Daniel Farke is confident new signing Mario Vrancic has the ability to impress in the Championship with Norwich City.
The Bosnia & Herzegovina international has signed a three-year deal with the Canaries following the completion of a move from German side Darmstadt, reportedly worth around £650,000.
“I’ve followed Mario’s path for several years,” City’s new German boss said.
“He played in Paderborn, the city where I come from. I’m really glad to work with him as he’s a very good character.
“He’s a really nice and kind guy too. I want players who give all their passion and emotions for our team and who always want to learn.
“I want players who really want to be at Norwich and want to do the things we’re going to do. Mario is perfect for that and is a very good fit for us.”
