Former Norwich City winger Yanic Wildschut has joined Maccabi Haifa, signing a two-year deal with the Israeli side.

The 27-year-old was a free agent after his contract run out at Carrow Road this summer.

"I am very happy to come here," said Wildschut. "I'm looking forward to getting to know my new teammates and preparing for a great season."

Wildschut was signed by City from Wigan in January 2017 as then manager Alex Neil tried to repair his derailed team, for a reported fee of £4million which could potentially rise to around £7m.

The speedy attacker made 20 appearances under Farke during the first half of last season, scoring once, a sweetly-struck winner at Sheffield United.

However, he was sent on loan to Cardiff for the second half of the 2017/18 season but failed to make much of an impact with the Welsh side.

Last summer he was sent on loan to Bolton for the season but struggled as the Trotters were relegated to League One amid huge financial problems.
