Real Sociedad and Atalanta linked with summer loan move for Norwich City full-back


Norwich City left-back Dimitris Giannoulis is reportedly a summer loan target for Real Sociedad and Atalanta.

The Greece international made a permanent move to Carrow Road last summer after an impressive loan spell with the Canaries in the second half of last season.

Giannoulis made 16 appearances as Norwich won the league title, but the left-back struggled to carve out a regular first-team spot after leaving PAOK.

Manchester United full-back Brandon Williams has impressed during his season-long loan spell at Norwich and is currently ahead of Giannoulis in the pecking order.

According to reports in Greece, it has sparked interest from clubs across Europe, with Real Sociedad and Atalanta monitoring the situation closely.

Giannis Chorianopoulos, editor-in-chief of Sportime, tweeted: “Real Sociedad and Atalanta are checking the status of Dimitris Giannoulis at Norwich City. For a possible loan move during the summer transfer window.

Giannoulis has made 11 Premier League appearances for City this season but has found playing time limited under Dean Smith.

The Greek left-back has started just two league games for the Canaries since Smith’s arrival in November and has been an unused substitute in the last five matches.

However, Giannoulis will, as it stands, be the only left-back option for Norwich when Williams returns to Old Trafford at the end of the season.
