German midfielder Tom Trybull joined Norwich on a one year deal on 4th August 2017 following a successful trial. He was given the number 19 shirt.

He began his career in his hometown with the youth teams of FC Berlin (1998-99), SV Lichtenberg (1999-2002), 1. FC Union Berlin (2002-08) and Hansa Rostock (2008-10). He made his full debut whilst with Hansa Rostok playing 18 games between 2010 and 2011.

He then moved to Werder Bremen in 2011 and made 21 appearances, scoring once. In 2014 he transferred to FC St Pauli for whom he made 15 appearances. The following year he joined SpVgg Greuther Furth for whom he played 18 games for their reserve time.

He moved to Holland to join ADO Den Haag in 2016 and made 23 appearances during 2016/17 before being released at the end of the season.

He had been capped by Germany at Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 level.

Trybull made his Norwich debut on 22nd August 2017 in the 4-1 home League Cup win over Charlton Athletic, coming on to replace Wes Hoolahan on 77 minutes and scoring Norwich's fourth twelve minutes later. He finished the season with 24 appearances and 3 goals to his name. He made 36 appearances in 2018/19, scoring twice, as Norwich won the Championship and promotion to the Premier League.He made just 20 appearances the following season leading to speculation that his time at Norwich might be coming to an end. This was confirmed when he was not involved in Norwich's pre-season activities.

On 31st August 2020 it was speculated that he would be joining Turkish side Besiktas on loan according to Turkish media source Ajansspor. He signed on a season long loan for Blackburn Rovers on 16th October 2020. He made 26 appearances for Rovers who finished 15th in the Championship.

In July 2021 media reports in The Telegraph suggested Fulham were interested in signing Trybull on loan.

On 26th August 2021 Norwich announced that Trybull would depart the club by mutual consent and on the following day he signed a one-year deal with Bundesliga 2 club Hannover 96, with the option for a further year. Fellow former CanarY Marcel Franke is also at the club. Confirming the deal, sporting director Marcus Mann told Hannover's website: "Tom is a player who has always distinguished his strategic skills and his tactical understanding. He has a high level of game intelligence and takes an active part in building up the game. In recent years in England, he has mastered the English tackle, so we are very much happy that we were able to win him over for our team."

After making just six appearances for Hannover, his contract was terminated on 30th January 2022. Despite some interest from Barnsley he signed for 2.Bundesliga side SV Sandhausen one day later.

Trybull returned to England on 11th January 2023 signing for Blackpool on a free transfer, on an 18 month contract. On 31st August 2023 he was released from his contract, having played just three games.

At the beginning of October 2023 Tom signed for Danish top lfight side Odense Boldklub on a short term contract.Sporting director Björn Wesström believes it was a no-brainer to swoop for Trybull when the opportunity arose and believes he adds quality to their squad.  "Sometimes opportunities arise that match the short-term needs that we as a team face. With Tom, we get a hard-working duel player who will increase the competition in the midfield this season." OB were 10th in the Superliga at the time of the signing having won just twice of their nine games.
