Norwich City midfielder Marco Stiepermann is dreaming of the Premier League after completing his move to the club on Sunday.
The German joins from FC Bochum, signing a three-year contract with the Canaries.
Stiepermann is able to operate in midfield or at left-back, which makes him a very useful option for Farke.
The 26-year-old played 32 in the 2. Bundesliga last season, having joined the club last summer from Greuther Fürth for €700k.
Stiepermann shares the same agent as Marcel Franke, who signed for Norwich last month from Greuther Fürth.
Speaking to Norwich’s website, Stiepermann said this:
It’s a dream of a German boy to play in the Premier League and maybe we can do that next year.
I’m very happy to be joining a traditional club in England. I’ve seen the city here and it’s very nice.
I didn’t need a long time to think about it because I was very interested in English football clubs. I’ve known about Norwich City for a long time and it’s good for me to play here.
The training ground is perfect and everything is very English, which I like. I will give my best to help the team.
Norwich are thought to have paid a fee in the region of €1m for the versatile midfielder.
Stiepermann becomes Norwich’s ninth summer signing, following on from Tom Trybull.
Trybull joined Norwich on a free transfer on Friday, signing a one-year deal.
The German midfield duo could now make their debuts against Swindon Town in the League Cup on Tuesday night at Carrow Road.
Norwich Sporting Director Stuart Webber claimed on BBC Radio Norfolk last week that the club would look to sign two to three more players – with Trybull and Stiepermann signing since then.
