German striker Dennis Srbeny joined Norwich on 25th January 2018 from German third tier side Paderborn for £1.35million. He had scored nine goals in 15 matches for Paderborn. He signed a three and ahalf year deal with Norwich.
He played for junior sides Tennis Borussia Berlin (2008-2011) and FC Hertha 03 Zehlendorf (2011-2013). He then played senior football with Hansa Rostock (2013-15), making 20 appearances and 1 goal. He moved to Dynamo Berlin in July 2015. After 28 goals in 55 games, he moved to Paderborn in July 2017.
City’s head coach Daniel Farke said: “Dennis is a really talented and young striker. We won’t put too much pressure on him, but he’s full of potential. He’s in a really good rhythm and was probably Paderborn’s most important offensive player. We’re really happy to sign a striker full of self-confidence who has scored a lot of goals.”
Srbeny made his Norwich debut as substitute in the 1-1 draw at Derby on 10th February 2018. He scored his first Norwich goal in the 3-1 win over Aston Villa at Carrow Road on 7th April 2018. He finished the season with 14 appearances.
