New Norwich Contract Discussions Underway With Tom Trybull

The 24-year-old midfield summer signing bagged his first Championship goal for the club on New Year's Day during an impressive outing, as Daniel Farke’s squad kicked off 2018 with a 2-1 victory over Millwall at Carrow Road.

Trybull has impressed for most of the season following a successful trial as a free agent in the summer, the German signed an initial one-year deal, with the Canaries holding a further year’s option to retain his services if all went well.

But given the degree of Trybull’s impact, an improved deal would appear a logical way of rewarding his efforts – and the former Werder Bremen and St Pauli midfielder has confirmed those talk are bearing fruit.

“I can imagine for sure to stay here,” said Trybull, who reiterated his desire to stay at Norwich for the foreseeable future.

“I have got an offer from the club for a new contract, but we’re still keeping in touch about it because it’s not just up to me.

“Everybody knows that I feel very comfortable here and that I can imagine to stay, but it’s not just my decision. My wife and I decide everything together and she is very happy with how it has worked the last few months and right now.

“But the (sporting) manager (Stuart Webber) is also an important part, as is the head coach as well, and they want me to stay and extend my contract. You have to speak about some things and sometimes it takes some time.”

Transfer Rumour: Cameron Jerome Set For Cut Price £1.5m Departure?

Derby County, Birmingham and Sunderland have all reportedly joined Cardiff City in the race to sign Norwich City forward Cameron Jerome.

The experienced striker has returned to full fitness after a recent back injury, but it looks like he could be sold at a cut-price £1.5million in the January transfer window to help ease the Canaries high wage bill, according to today's SunSport column.

Bluebirds manager Neil Warnock is keen to take the 31-year-old forward back to South Wales during the transfer window to help boost their promotion push after three straight Championship defeats.

Birmingham and Sunderland are in need of goals to shoot themselves out the relegation dogfight.

Under pressure Blues boss Steve Cotterill has already made enquiries about the forward who spent five years St Andrews as he looks to bolster his squad who are rock bottom of the Championship.

Jerome joined Norwich in 2014 for £4m and has another 18 months left on his current deal with the club having an option for a further 12 months in the summer of 2019.
