It’s been an exciting few days for winger Przemek Placheta, who followed up his first goal for Norwich City by proposing to his girlfriend in London.

The Poland Under-21 international scored a late equaliser for the Canaries to earn a 2-2 Championship draw with Preston during his Carrow Road debut on Saturday, also setting up Teemu Pukki for a chance of an injury-time winner which was brilliantly saved.

Placheta then followed on with a proposal when staying at a hotel in skyscraper The Shard earlier this week, showing his romantic side with a room decorated with heart-shaped balloons and rose petals - as well as ‘marry me’ in giant lettering.

Fortunately his girlfriend, Alexandra, was able to follow up with her own Instagram post to say “I said yes” with an emoji of a diamond ring.

The 22-year-old joined City this summer after impressing in the Polish top flight for Slask Wroclaw, in a deal reportedly worth £2million, signing a contract until 2024.
