Zimmermann is now set to be on the sidelines for four-to-six weeks. This means that he will miss the entirety of pre-season and likely be out for the start of the Premier League campaign.
The German defender signed a new four-year deal earlier this week, after his starring role in Norwich’s promotion to the top-flight.
He played played 45 games in all competitions for Norwich last season and was captain for the majority of the second-half of the campaign, lifting the Championship trophy alongside Grant Hanley at Villa Park.
