According to The Star, Norwich City have completed the signing of French midfielder William Hondermarck from Ireland First Division side Drogheda. The player has been one of the most highly rated youngsters in Ireland, and it would be a big challenge for the teenager to come to the Championship and make a mark.

The Canaries are currently at the second position in the Championship league table and are just one point behind the leaders Leeds United. Daniel Farke has looked determined to progress to the Premier League this season, and the addition of a young player like Hondermarck would be a big boost for them in this respect.

The 18-year-old is known for having a very calm and composed attitude in the middle of the pitch and would pair up well with the likes of Tom Trybull and Mario Vrancic, who have been in decent form this season.

However, no one expects the youngster to walk into the starting eleven right away as there would be competition for places in the Norwich City lineup.

The inclusion of the Frenchman would also allow Farke to experiment a bit with his team formation. Generally, it has been seen that the Norwich City gaffer uses a 4-2-3-1 formation. The inclusion of Hondermarck would give him the opportunity to go into a more attacking 4-3-3 formation, with the youngster pairing up with Vrancic and Trybull in midfield.

The Canaries have been in good form this season and have clinched 15 wins out of their 28 matches so far, one less than the leaders Leeds United. However, their strikers have found the back of the net 36 times this season which is six times more than the Whites, giving them an advantage up front over the other Championship title contenders.

Now that they have added another midfielder in the form of Hondermarck, it is expected to provide them more stability in the middle of the pitch as well and a possible edge over their Championship rivals in the race for promotion.

Though the inexperience of the 18-year-old midfielder might be a detriment for him to make an immediate impression for his new team, the French ace is expected to only improve under the tutelage of a wily tactician like Daniel Farke.
