Norwich City missed out on a deal to sign German midfielder Sonny Kittel this week. 

According to Hamburger Abendblatt, via The EDP, Kittel was on his way to Norwich for talks with Daniel Farke over a potential move to Carrow Road.

Instead, Kittel ended up missing his flight and then changed his mind over a transfer to England, deciding that he would rather stay in Germany.

Following that decision, Kittel joined 2. Bundesliga side Hamburg from Ingolstadt for an undisclosed transfer fee.

Kittel enjoyed an impressive season with Ingolstadt last term, as he racked up 11 goals and six assists for the side in the second tier of German football – attracting interest from Norwich.

After missing out on Kittel, however, Norwich have now agreed a deal to sign midfielder David Turnbull from Scottish side Motherwell. Turnbull scored 16 and assisted eight in all competitions last season and was heavily linked with a move to Celtic.
