Teemu Pukki reportedly rejected a big-money move to China before putting pen to paper on a new deal with Norwich.
Reports from Finnish outlet Ilta-Sanomat claim that the player rejected offers to leave Norwich after their promotion to the Premier League.
Pukki was coming off the back of a fantastic season in the Championship and clearly, his performances were not going unnoticed around the world.
The report also suggests that Pukki had big offers in Europe too, with Benfica among the clubs known to be linked with a move to sign him.
However, it is claimed that the striker was prioritising Premier League football over financial gain following Norwich’s promotion from the Championship.
It was confirmed earlier in the week that the striker had signed a new deal at Carrow Road, committing his future to the club until 2022.
Pukki is now set to lead the line for Norwich in the top flight and will no doubt be a key part of Daniel Farke’s side once again.
Four key things Norwich must do to survive in the Premier League
Keep young talent close to home
Norwich must do all they can to ensure that the likes of Max Aarons and Jamal Lewis don’t leave the club this summer. They will all be key players for Norwich next season.
Be patient with Farke
It can be very easy for any promoted team to make rash decisions if they start poorly, but Norwich must avoid any drastic changes in the dugout.
Have enough firepower up front
Pukki was the man to provide the goals last season but Farke must ensure that the club have sufficient quality behind him too.
Stick to their guns
Norwich won promotion playing a brilliant brand of football and it would be easy to move away from that in the Premier League.
