Timm Klose’s injury could force Daniel Farke to look for replacements, the City boss has revealed.

Klose is set to be out for an extended period of time, with the Swiss defender potentially missing up to 6 weeks of action.

The defender has been seeing a specialist in Switzerland but could need surgery.

If he needs surgery it could be two months, then rehab. We might have to look for external solutions.

Norwich had revealed that they did not expect to do any ingoing business in the January window, with funds still tight.

Timm Klose has been ever-present for the Canaries this season, but was benched for the draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Norwich will also be without Alex Tettey, who could return for the East Anglian Derby with Ipswich.

Tettey and Klose will be key absences for the Canaries, who want to keep up their promotion bid.
