Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke says that he is happy with Jamal Lewis’ close return to the first-team.

Lewis has been out injured since pre-season, but recently returned to training ahead of his comeback.

The left-back thoroughly impressed during pre-season with Norwich and was expected to be given a chance early on in the season.

However, an injury in training has ruled him out for the past four months, with Farke now confirming he could be back soon.

Speaking to Norwich’s website, Farke said this:

Jamal has been back for three weeks now. He’s very close to being in our squad but we don’t need to change the squad too much after last week’s win.

He will probably play one more game for the Under-23s on Monday but that depends what happens in our game. Jamal is in a good place and I’m happy to have him back.

Marco Stiepermann is Norwich’s current first-choice left-back, but concerns have been raised after his recent performances.

Lewis is yet to make a senior appearance for the club at this point in time. He was awarded a new long-term deal shortly after his injury.
