Hwang Ui-jo of EPL Nottingham is most likely to sign with Norwich on a “one-year loan” in the Championship
Striker Hwang Eui-jo (31), who failed to secure a starting spot at Nottingham Forest in the English Professional Soccer Premier League (EPL), has opted to join Norwich City in the Championship (second tier) on a one-year loan.
Norwich City announced on their website on February 2 (KST), “We have signed South Korean international Hwang Eui-jo. He joins on loan and will play with us for the remainder of the season.” He will wear the number 31 shirt.
Through the club, Hwang said, “I’m really looking forward to it. I will do my best to help the team,” and “I can’t wait to play.”
Hwang made his EPL debut in August 2022 when he joined Nottingham from Bordeaux (France), but was quickly loaned to Olympiakos (Greece), where he failed to make an impact.
In February of this year, he opted for a short-term six-month loan to K League One club FC Seoul, and returned to his original club last month, raising expectations as he competed for a starting spot in preseason games.
However, he hasn’t actually taken the field since the start of the 2023-2024 season and was eventually loaned out to Championship side Norwich City to find playing time.
Norwich City were in need of reinforcements, especially with key striker Joshua Sergeant out with an ankle injury.
“We had to be patient, but we’re happy to have him in the squad,” said head coach Davit Wagner. “It was a goal to find a new striker after Sugent’s injury. I am happy that we have found a solution.”
Norwich City are second in the Championship this season with three wins and a draw (10 points), 카지노사이트넷 behind Leicester City (12 points).
