Norwich City are still interested in Union Berlin defender Toni Leistner, despite signing Marcel Franke on Friday.

According to Berlin Sport, Norwich head coach Daniel Farke wants both Franke and Leistner in his team for next season.

It has been claimed that Norwich are keen on signing the central defender this summer, with a bid of €3.5m having been lodged earlier this summer.

That offer was rejected, but Berlin Sport say that Norwich are likely to return with an improved offer before the end of the transfer window.

Norwich announced the signing of Franke from Furth on Friday, who was rumoured as a replacement for Leistner at Berlin if he were to leave.

Leistner has one year left on his current deal with Berlin, which could also tempt them in to selling the defender.

He is 26-years-old and has been with Berlin since 2014, racking up 74 league appearances in that time.
