2 Norwich City players who may have been disappointed not to have left in the January transfer window

It’s been a busy January transfer window at Norwich City as David Wagner begins to shape his squad.

The Canaries got off to an excellent start in life under Wagner. The 51-year-old has won two of his first three games since replacing Dean Smith in early January, including back-to-back league wins away.

He bolstered his squad with the arrival of winger Marquinhos, on loan from Arsenal on deadline day and the club’s only signing in the window.

However, there have been a number of departures, including Saxon Earley, Todd Cantwell and Jordan Hugill leaving permanently, while Jonathan Tomkinson, Tony Springett and Danel Sinani have all gone on loan.

But here are two players who may be disappointed they didn’t secure an exit from Carrow Road last month.

Jacob Sorensen

Sorensen has been a key member of the Canarias squad since joining from Danish club Esbjerg fB in July 2020, making 32 appearances as the club lifted the league title in his first season at the club.

Since then, however, Sorensen has had limited playing minutes and has been sidelined for much of this season through injury. He recently made his comeback with two substitute appearances in the last two league games, suggesting he’s in Wagner’s plans, but there’s plenty of competition for mid-table spots.

Sorensen is a useful asset with his ability to play in midfield or defense, but unless he’s going to be a regular he might want to leave temporarily and build up his fitness while showing Wagner what he’s capable of forcing himself into the competition for the next season.

Michael McGovern

There is little prospect of McGovern getting playing time at Carrow Road anytime soon with Tim Krul and Angus Gunn ahead of him in the pecking order.

At the end of that career at the age of 38 and having had limited minutes for much of his time at the club since arriving from Hamilton Academical in 2016, McGovern can now be content to see his career as a substitute.

But if he wanted one last chance to be number one before retiring, McGovern might have believed January was his chance to go elsewhere.
