Norwich City have announced the signing of Christoph Zimmermann, who has been brought into the club as a free transfer on a 2-year deal.

The 23-year-old is a defensive minded player, usually deployed as a centre-back. Zimmermann was part of the Dortmund II side which conceded just 25 goals, the lowest amount in the German 4th division last season.

The Canaries seem to be getting their business done and dusted early this transfer window, as they prepare for their first season with a new structure within the club. Webber and Farke are obviously working very close together, and considering the little amount of money spent so far, have made some very smart buy’s.

To help fans learn more about the new singing, we’ve created a fact file which will, hopefully, help our readers learn a lot more about the man who could prove pivotal in the heart of the City defence this season.
