Norwich City have signed midfielder Ondrej Duda on loan from German Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin until the end of the season.

The Slovakian international scored 11 goals for Hertha last season, but has fallen out of favour this term.

Before making the move to Germany, Duda was a key player for Polish side Legia Warsaw.

Duda joins a Norwich team who are currently rock bottom of the Premier League and eight points adrift of safety.

“I spoke with the coach (Daniel Farke) a few days ago about the possibility to come here and in the end, I decided I want to come here. I wanted to decide fast and right and I’m happy to be here," Duda said.

"He (Farke) was just honest with me. He told me what was going on here and he told me everything about Norwich. When we talked, it was clear that I wanted to come here.

“I’m going to do my best, but first of all, I need to get into match rhythm and we will see. I hope we are going to take some points, step-by-step. In the end, hopefully everyone will be happy.”

Norwich Head Coach Daniel Farke added: "We’re really happy that it was possible for us to get Ondrej on board. He was fantastic last season for Hertha Berlin and was able to deliver many goals and assists.

“It’s a good deal for all parties. We’re bringing in a player who can play in the number ten role or in the wider areas and he’s proven that he can score goals and provide assists at the highest level.

“We’ll have to see how quickly he can help us and adapt, but we’re hopeful he can be a very good option for us for the second part of the season.”
