Timm Klose is in negotiation with Norwich City over a new contract with Timm being quoted on the Swiss FA website confirming as much.

“We are in negotiations with Norwich, I would very much like to continue playing here. But who knows what the future will bring. ”
Timm joined Norwich in January 2016, along with Steven Naismith and Ivo Pinto as part of Alex Neil and David McNally’s attempt to keep the Canaries in the top flight, which ultimately failed.
Since then, Timm has become a firm fan favourite as well as being an excellent defender, after he adapted to the Championship, which by his own admission was something of a culture shock.
Timm started the season as one of the first choice centre backs but he lost his place in December, pulling up injured in the warm-up before City played Bolton at home. Ben Godfrey stepped in at short notice and due to the team’s winning runs, Timm, and Grant Hanley for that matter have had to watch on from the sidelines, something that Timm fully understands and accepts.
“I think I would be and I am still the center-back number 1. However, when I came back from injury, we have lost no game. Then success comes first for me. I train and behave professionally. In the end, we all win. ”
Klose’s contract is up in the summer and to my mind it seems a no-brainier to re-sign such an experienced, accomplished defender. Yes, he’s 31 years old next month but the club would only have to pay his new wage deal, which would be a lot cheaper than signing a new player.
Plus, it’s Timm and we all love Timm.
Makes sense to me.
