Jacob Lungi Sørensen joined Norwich City on 20th July 2020 from Danish side Esbjerg on a three year deal. The 22 year old midfielder has been capped by Denmark at Under-21 level (he has also played at Under-18 and Under-20 level). Sorensen has made 117 senior appearances in all competitions for Esbjerg, who play in the top-flight of Danish football, scoring eight goals. The powerful midfielder also featured in the Europa League for his home-town side during 2019/20.
Head Coach Daniel Farke added: “We’re really happy to be able to sign Jacob. There was a lot of interest and many clubs were after him. He’s young but still has experience on a really good level in a different country. He’s a brilliant lad and I like his attitude. He offers a lot in midfield. He’s aggressive and competitive in duels but also good on the ball, so quite versatile. From defensive midfield positions, he’s also been capable of scoring goals, something we have been lacking. I think we’ve got a really good talent. We hope he can help us in the short and long term.”
