According to Eastern Daily Press, former Norwich target Toni Leistner is available for a free transfer.

Leistner has six months left on his contract at Union Berlin, so Norwich can approach the defender over a move in the summer, but the promotion clause in his contract could confuse proceedings.

If Union Berlin get promotion to the top tier of German football, then a clause is triggered in his contract, which will keep him at the club for another 12 months.

However, they are five points of the play-off spot and 10 points behind the automatic promotion places, so they need some resurgence during the last stretch of the season if they want promotion. So Norwich could get the man which they’ve previously wanted.

When Norwich tried to sign Leistner, they had two bids rejected from Union Berlin and settled on signing Grant Hanley from the previous Championship champions Newcastle for £3.8m.
