Timm Klose admits being close to quitting Norwich

Timm Klose was a vital member of the Norwich City team as they were promoted back to the Premier League last season.

But Klose revealed that his future might have lay elsewhere if they weren't promoted according to the Evening News.

"I quickly realised that Norwich wants to keep me and really feel at home in the city. I'm really happy there," he said. "It gives me tremendous strength that I can call Norwich my home, next to Basel.

"Of course there were offers. But for me, it was clear that I would like to stay.

"I know (FCB) sports manager Marco Streller well and have always been in contact, mostly as friends, more recently as a sports director and player. That's funny, but we can separate it. But with the rise of Norwich, I knew that I wanted to play in the Premier League again. Without that, yes, a return (to FCB) would have become relatively concrete.

"I have not won anything here yet, and I want to give something back to the club."
