Norwich City have signed Wolfsburg centre-back Timm Klose for an undisclosed fee.

The Swiss international has signed a three-and-a-half year contract at Carrow Road and becomes Norwich's fourth signing of the transfer window.

Klose was a regular for Wolfsburg last season but has lost his place in the side this campaign thanks to the arrival of former Bayern Munich centre-back Dante.

"Timm has got plenty of experience having played in the Bundesliga, in the Champions League and for his country, which will be an asset to us.

As a player, he's got good technical ability and he's solid in the air.

He can also play at either right centre-back or left centre-back."

Klose says that he had no hesitation in making the move to England.

"When I started football, for me it was always a dream to play in the Premier League and now Norwich have given me a big chance.

Now I want to give everything I can to be a good player in this league.

When I came here (Norwich) and saw the training ground, the stadium, and everything - it was fantastic. This place smells like football, and that's how I want to play.

I can't wait to hear the fans and play in front of them."

– Timm Klose, Norwich City
