Daniel Farke happy with current crop

Norwich boss Daniel Farke hasn’t ruled out adding a few more new faces to his squad before the transfer window closes but says he would be happy to begin the Premier League campaign with his current options.

The Canaries have signed eight players outright in the summer window since winning promotion, including forward Josip Drmic from Borussia Monchengladbach and Sam Byram from West Ham. Winger Patrick Roberts has also joined on loan from Manchester City and keeper Ralf Fahrmann has agreed a temporary switch from Schalke.

Farke says Norwich are still looking at the market but the German coach remains guarded on the possibility of further additions in the build-up to their tough season opener against Liverpool at Anfield on August 9.

“I am pretty realistic. Of course we would like to add some quality but we know we have to compete with the tools we have,” Farke told Sky Sports. “That is what we are trying to do. “I won’t complain. I am happy with my group of players, so I expect a quiet final two weeks.

“We always want to add some quality but you have to accept our possibilities and we know we can’t compete with the big clubs for the big players.”

Norwich are 17.00 to beat Liverpool in the first round of fixtures or 51.00 to win 2-1. The Canaries are 1.83 to be relegated, with fellow newly-promoted outfit Sheffield United the 1.62 favourites to go down.
