Norwich City have announced the signing of winger Christos Tzolis from Greek club PAOK for a fee of around £10m.
Tzolis has signed a five-year contract with the Canaries, subject to international clearance, and the 19-year-old will wear the No. 18 shirt for the 2021/22 season.
The initial fee for Tzolis is £8.8m with performance-related add-ons and the total fee with add-ons is just under £10m.
Tzolis excelled last season, registering 16 goals and 10 assists across 46 appearances in all competitions, as PAOK finished as runners-up in the Greek Super League.
He is capped eight times by Greece, helped PAOK to the Greek Cup last term and was also involved in their Europa League campaign.
Tzolis said: “I would like to thank everyone for the very good welcome. I’m very happy to be a part of this team and I hope to see the fans as fast as possible.

“From the first moment, I was really excited to come here. I said to my agent to sign as fast as possible here. It’s a very good step for me.
“[Last year] was my first professional season. I had good stats and we won the cup in Greece. It was a very good season for me and I hope to continue like this here in the Premier League.”
