Timm Klose is on the verge of signing a new Norwich City deal, as reported here by the EDP.
This is something that I first heard over the weekend with talk of Timm being happy with the new contract offered to him and wanting to get it signed before he goes on his summer holiday.
The economics behind re-signing such an experienced player are literally a no-brainer for the club and it seems that the lure of playing in the Premier League again has seen off any competition from other clubs.
In recent days, Timm has been linked with summer moves to both Glasgow Rangers and Galatasaray, stories that I haven’t bothered reporting due to the high likelihood of him staying with the Canaries.
He’s going to be 31 tomorrow (9/5) but buying a replacement with his ability and experience would cost a rather large fortune.
Without a transfer fee and just offering him a new improved contract offer, it represents very sound business, just like the re-signing of Alex Tettey last summer.
The fact that City will once again be playing in the Premier League is clearly a huge factor in the club being able to keep him financially and Timm wanting to stay.
