Philip Heise is leaving Norwich City.
Norwich have confirmed the permanent exit of left-back Heise.
Signed from Dynamo Dresden for a nominal fee in January 2019 ahead of his contract expiring, City's promotion a few months later meant that Heise's only appearance came during a shock 1-0 loss to League Two side Crawley in the League Cup second round at the start of the next campaign.
He was on the bench for two Premier League games before returning to the German second tier and helping Nuremberg to scrape to survival last year.
This season he was with Karlsruher and mixing it in the top half of Bundesliga 2, eventually slipping away from promotion contention to finish sixth, with a goal and six assists during 30 appearances.
