Biography

Christoph Zimmerman followed head coach Daniel Farke from Borussia Dortmund's Under-23s to Norwich on 15th June 2017. The 24-year-old, 6ft 4in defender joins City as a free agent signing a two-year deal.

Zimmermann came through the youth system at Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach, making his professional debut for their B-team in the German third division back in 2014.

He reached 50 appearances, scoring two goals, before making the move to BVB’s second string – where Zimmermann played under both Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner and new Norwich head coach Daniel Farke.

Known for being a reliable professional and strong in the air, Zimmermann made 47 appearances for Farke’s side last season as they earned promotion to 3 Liga – the third tier of German football. “He’s very big, tall, strong and powerful and he’s an intelligent boy,” said Farke. “He was my captain of my under-23 team at Borussia Dortmund, and he fits English football because of his powerful way. We’re very happy he’s chosen to come to Norwich.”

Zimmermann made his Norwich debut in the 1-1 draw away to Fulham on the opening day of the 2017/18 season (5th August 2017)
