Twitter: Norwich are appointing Borussia Dortmund II’s Daniel Farke as their new head coach. Deal to be agreed this week #ncfc #otbc (@JPercyTelegraph) Telegraph journalist John Percy has revealed that Norwich will be appointing the manager of Borussia Dortmund II’s team, Daniel Farke. This confirms reports that sporting director Stuart Webber was on the lookout for a German manager, as he follows the same path he took to take David Wagner to Huddersfield. Farke replaced Wagner as Dortmund II’s manager when Huddersfield snatched him two years ago, with Webber back to bring Farke to Norwich. The 40-year-old led his side to a 2nd-placed finish this season, impressing the powers that be at Carrow Road. He will become the first foreign boss Norwich have ever had in their history, and will be tasked with gaining promotion to the Premier League in his first Championship job. The Telegraph have also revealed that Farke rejected the chance to join Darmstadt in the Bundesliga, and will be bringing his own backroom staff with him to Norwich.

Norwich City have confirmed Daniel Farke as the new head coach of the club in a statement.

Farke has signed a two-year contract with the club, along with his backroom team.

Sporting director Stuart Webber has finally got his man, as he takes the same route he did for David Wagner at Huddersfield.

Farke replaced Wagner as Dortmund II’s manager when Huddersfield snatched him two years ago, with Webber back to bring Farke to Norwich.

The 40-year-old led his side to a 2nd-placed finish this season, impressing the powers that be at Carrow Road.

He has become the first foreign boss Norwich have ever had in their history, and will be tasked with gaining promotion to the Premier League in his first Championship job.

Farke rejected the chance to join Darmstadt in the Bundesliga, and will be bringing his own backroom staff with him to Norwich.

The German boss will now be looking to get to work in the transfer market ahead of the pre-season.

Norwich in talks with Rangers over Dorrans switch .
Scottish Premier League side Rangers are in talks with Norwich over a move for Graham Dorrans. According to Sky Sports, Rangers are wanting to bring Dorrans back to Scotland, with the two clubs currently in dialogue over a potential switch. There is no mention of a transfer fee, or whether it would be a loan move – although Dorrans was a key part of Norwich’s side this season. Dorrans scored six goals in 22 Championship starts for the Canaries, but missed the majority of the second half of the season due to injury. Daniel Farke has come in as Norwich’s head coach and is wanting to play high-paced, pressing, possession football and could look to move Dorrans on to sign players that suit his style. The report also claims that Dorrans is keen on moving back to Scotland, so a move to Rangers would be appealing for him. Dorrans was born in Glasgow but never played for Celtic or Rangers at senior level.
