Norwich City ready to sell trio

The trio have been told they are unlikely to be involved in the squad when they return ahead of the new Championship season.

They are due to be part of the rebuilding job at Carrow Road with the Canaries having already made six signings since dropping out of the Premier League, including Kieran Dowell from Everton.

Drmic has been an expensive failure after arriving on a free transfer from Borussia Monchengladbach last summer.

The striker scored just three goals across 25 appearances and was one of the club’s top earners, marking a wretched transfer window.

Expensive loan moves for Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann, Sevilla midfielder Ibrahim Amadou and Patrick Roberts from Manchester City were cut short mid-season as Norwich finished bottom of the table.

Trybull was one of boss Daniel Farke’s first signings, joining the Canaries in 2017, and helped them win the Championship title in 2019.

He started the first four games of the club’s doomed Premier League campaign before suffering an ankle injury and was then restricted to just 10 starts after returning in November.

Leitner, who initially joined on loan from Augsburg in 2018 before making a permanent move, played just 10 times last term and failed to make a top flight appearance after October.

He was ruled out of the run-in in July with a hernia problem which needed surgery.

Jamal Lewis has been strongly linked with Liverpool while Ben Godfrey, Todd Cantwell, Emi Buendia and Max Aarons could all go.

Victory for the Canaries over City in September was the highlight of their season – but, it’s been downhill since then, with relegation already confirmed.

Daniel Farke’s side have taken a battering in recent months, with a staggering 26 losses so far this season.

For City, this represents a final chance for a competitive game ahead of the return of the Champions League next month.

Pep Guardiola is sweating on the fitness of Sergio Aguero for the game against Los Blancos – with the Argentinian’s domestic campaign was cut short due to knee surgery.

What will comfort the City boss, though, is that aside from an injury to back-up goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, is a clean bill of health to pick from against Norwich.

The same cannot be said for the Canaries though, with Daniel Farke lamenting the injury list which has plagued Norwich’s season.

Moritz Leitner and Grant Hanley will miss the trip to the Etihad through injury, and Sam Byram needs an operation on a hernia problem.

To make matters worse for Norwich, the influential pair Emiliano Buendia and Josip Drmic sit out due to suspension, after both players saw red last time out against Burnley.

Manchester City v Norwich City is a 4pm kick off on Sunday, July 26.
