Norwich City loan export Christos Tzolis has linked up with the Canaries for their warm weather training camp in Tampa Bay.

The 20-year-old spent three months with Eredivisie side Twente after agreeing a season-long loan in July, but returned to Norfolk for rehab after suffering knee ligament damage in a 2-0 defeat to Feyenoord.

That injury was expected to keep him out for around two months, until after the World Cup, and he's now stepping up his recovery with Norwich while they're in America.

Pictures released by the club on their official Twitter account show the Greek international running during what appears to be individual training, having had his leg in a brace last month.

Tzolis was brought to Carrow Road for £8.8million in the summer of 2021, after an impressive season in the Greek Super League for PAOK. He struggled to impress in his first season abroad, however, starting just three Premier League games and failing to make a single goal contribution in the English top flight.

This resulted in City's openness to Tzolis' departure a year later, with interest coming from a variety of clubs including Twente and Belgian side Club Brugge. He joined the Dutch side in July, signing a deal to keep him in Enschede until 2023.

Norwich head coach Dean Smith believes Tzolis has a future with his side, however, with no permanent buy option or obligation included in the deal. The former Aston Villa boss said of the winger's departure: "He is a player with lots of potential.

"Unfortunately, he didn't play a lot of minutes last season. We still believe there is potential to come out of him.

"But we can't give him the amount of game time this season that he needs. In the long run for him and the football club we feel it is better for his development he goes out on loan. Then he comes back full of confidence after that."
