Milot Rashica, the Kosovo international who has been gathering more and more interest from Premier League clubs, is set to play for Norwich City next season in the Premier League. He had been tied to a move to Aston Villa for almost a year now, but will suit up for the Canaries instead.
“I’m really excited to play in front of the Norwich fans and in the Premier League,” Rashica said in an official statement through the club’s official website. “I will of course give my best to this football club in every game and hope to excite the fans with many goals and assists. I can’t wait to get started.”
At 24 years old, Rashica joins the club after three-plus seasons with Werder Bremen in top-flight German football.
“I know a few things about the club, particularly the style of play under Daniel Farke,” Rashica added. “I want to continue to learn and develop as a player and person and I think that the style of play here will suit me very well.”
A few seasons back, in 2018-2019, Rashica finished as Bremen’s top scorer, with 12 goals in all competitions. He started 2019-2020 with seven goals in the first ten Bundesliga matches, finishing again as the team’s top scorer with 11 goals in all competitions.
On the international level, Rashica has scored six goals in 32 caps for Kosovo.
“With Milot we have a very interesting player and we’re delighted to have been able to bring him to Norwich City,” Daniel Farke said. “Many top clubs have been interested in his signature over the last seasons and he was quite often connected with a big money move.”
Between 2018-2021, he has 27 goals and 19 assists in 100 matches for Werder Bremen.
“I have spoken with the boss and I know what he wants to see from me,” Rashica said. “Those conversations with him recently have been a big help and I am very excited.”
