Norwich City look set to keep Timm Klose from the clutches of the Bundesliga as the European transfer window runs down.
The transfer window has, of course, closed for English clubs although the loan window is still open for loan deals in England. That doesn’t apply to clubs in the rest of the world though and in recent weeks, Timm Klose has been heavily linked by various media outlets, including Bild in Germany, with a move to Bundesliga side, Hannover 96.
Hannover are looking for defensive reinforcements due to injuries to some key players and with less than 12 months left on his Norwich contract, Klose has reportedly been targeted.
It’s a tough decision to make for the club though. Do they sell him or almost certainly lose him next summer for nothing?
Timm has been a first-team regular under Daniel Farke and that looks set to continue, assuming he stays. So why is he likely to stay?
Well, despite stories over the weekend suggesting that personal terms had been agreed between the player and Hannover, it seems that Norwich aren’t willing to budge on their value of Timm.
This is being reported via the Eastern Daily Press.
It seems though that, according to Bild, the price is too much and that Hannover will now turn to Sunderland’s Papy Djilobodji as a cheaper alternative.
The transfer window finally closes on (this) Friday 31st August, so fingers crossed that we can hang onto Timm, who is a hugely important member of the team.
