Canaries leave Bushiri out of Germany trip

New Norwich defender Rocky Bushiri has surprisingly been left out of both the senior and U23 squads for the pre-season Germany tour.

Bushiri joined the Canaries earlier this month from KV Oostende after impressing on loan last season in his native Belgium for KAS Eupen.

He was expected to be a regular for the Canaries’ U23s in the 2019-20 campaign and was even tipped to push for a first-team role but he’s been left out of both the senior and U23s squads for the summer trip to Germany.

The Belgium U21 international was a surprising omission from the list when Norwich confirmed their squads for the pre-season tour, which leaves on Friday, and now reports say he could instead be allowed out on loan by Norwich.

If he does leave on loan in the coming weeks, it is unclear if Bushiri will return to Belgium or be given the chance to taste first-team football in England at a League One or League Two club.
