Norwich City striker Josip Drmić says he's delighted for teammate Teemu Pukki - despite the fact that the Finnish forward's blistering start to the Premier League season could mean he has to wait for his first start for the club.

Switzerland international Drmić joined the Canaries on a free transfer and is yet to start a competitive game for his new club after he picked up a hamstring injury in training.

However, with Pukki currently the joint top scorer in the Premier League alongside Manchester City's Raheem Sterling, he may not have featured much anyway.

Drmić did come on as a late substitute in the opening night defeat at Liverpool, and he is keen to taste more first team action after he's proved his fitness to Head Coach Daniel Farke.

"It's not easy for me (to get in the team), so I have to accept it," he told ITV News Anglia's Andy Ward.

"But I'm very happy for Pukki. I know that he's a great player and a great person - a great friend to me. I hope that he continues and I will support him, because he supports me.

"My wish is that I play with him up front (Pukki) and then we have two great scorers, and not just one!"

Drmić was talking to ITV News Anglia at a special pre-launch event ahead of the official opening of the club's new Fan Hub on Tuesday.

The new store on the lower floor of Jarrold Intersport will sell official club merchandise, as well as giving supporters the chance to play computer games and even have a go at a penalty kick simulator.

Members of the Junior Canaries group were invited for a party on Monday afternoon to celebrate the occasion, and Drmić says it's great to see so many young fans backing the Canaries instead of choosing to support other clubs.

"It's very nice to see the kids, they're the future," said Drmić.

"When they're looking at you with their eyes, I was also a child like that so I hope that it will stay like this. I hope that they support us and give everything for us."
