Twente confirm ending Christos Tzolis’ loan and returns to Norwich City

Twente have confirmed winger Christos Tzolis loan has finished early and returns to his parent club Norwich City, the club have announced

The Eredivisie side signed Tzolis in the summer from the Championship side but only managed to make 10 league appearances during his short time with head coach Ron Jans – limited due to a serious knee ligament injury.

The Greek international started life at the Encschede team well, starting regularly before suffering a ligament injury which saw him miss six matches and is yet to start a match since returning to training. 

Despite a couple of substitute appearances against Ajax and Vitesse in January, the club ended the loan spell early on mutual termination.

Technical director Jan Streuer said: “Christos suffered a knee injury in October and spent several months at Norwich for his long rehabilitation. He is now recovering from his injury, but has indicated that he would like to return to England. After consultation between all parties, we have decided to agree to this.”

The 21-year-old joined Norwich City in 2021 for €11 million but has failed to make an impact during the club’s last season in the Premier League – failing to score or assist in 14 league appearances before his brief spell in the Eredivisie this season. 

Tzolis picked up just one goal during his time at De Grolsch Veste which happened against Excelsior in a 4-0 win back in August last year.
