Paderborn re-sign Dennis Srbeny from Norwich

Striker Dennis Srbeny has rejoined German club Paderborn from Norwich for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old signed for the Canaries from then third-tier Paderborn during January 2018 and went on to help Daniel Farke’s side win the Sky Bet Championship last season.

However, regular first-team opportunities were limited by the form of Finland forward Teemu Pukki.

Srbeny made 43 appearances for Norwich, scoring five goals – the last of which came late on during the Premier League game at Everton to seal a 2-0 win in November.

A statement from the Norfolk club read: “All at Norwich City would like to thank Dennis for his contributions and wish him well in his future career.”

Srbeny has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Paderborn, who are currently bottom of the Bundesliga.

“Dennis fits perfectly into our requirement profile of a large, team-friendly and accurate striker,” Paderborn sporting director Martin Przondziono said on the club’s website.

“He knows the conditions in Paderborn very well and is the dream player of our head coach Steffen Baumgart. We are very happy that this transfer worked out.

“I am sure that Dennis will directly help the team with his presence and danger of scoring.”
