DONE DEAL: FC Zurich sign Norwich midfielder Moritz Leitner

FC Zurich have signed Norwich City midfielder Moritz Leitner.

Leitner will be playing in Switzerland this season following the mutual agreement this summer to end his Norwich City contract a year early.

The former Germany Under-21 international has signed for Swiss Super League club FC Zurich on a one-year deal.

Reports in Poland surfaced recently that Leitner was in talks with Polish champions Legia Warsaw. However, it emerged the Greman midfielder had actually been training with Rakow Czestochowa, who were runners-up behind Warsaw last season, reports the Pink 'Un.

Reports suggest that Rakow weren't convinced by the 28-year-old's fitness though, having not made a first-team appearance since January 2020.
