Norwich City defender Timm Klose has said that he would like to play in the Premier League next season.

Klose’s Norwich City future is currently up in the air following an apparent falling out with former manager Alex Neil.

Before his sacking, Neil told Klose that he could find a new club and had excluded him from the last two matchday squads.

The Swiss international has been maligned by fans in recent matches for a couple of costly errors, but Klose has been impressive in spells this season.

Klose has won three of our Read Norwich player of the month awards so far this season, for November, October and January.

Speaking to BzBasel, Klose said this when quizzed about a possible return to play for Basel.

The topic with the FCB is always brought back to me. And it is understandable among the few Basler in the team, that the people again scream for more Basler in the team.

Of course my heart beats for the FCB, which is an open secret, but I need to rethink my situation and consider all options. Basically, I would like to play in the Premier League, because my time there was simply too short.

When asked about his absence from the last two games, Klose said this:

It was a decision of the coach I respect. He is responsible for the setup, even if this now plays no role. Because Alex Neil has now been released. What does it change for you? Of course this depends on the new coach. But it is also the case that we have decided with the club that we will soon discuss my future.

Norwich City host Barnsley at Carrow Road this weekend and Klose will be hoping that caretaker manager Alan Irvine gives him the chance to show what he can do now that Neil has left the club.
