Teemu Pukki Seals Return to British Football by Joining Norwich

Teemu Pukki has sealed a return to British football by joining English Championship side Norwich.

The Finnish striker has spent the last four years playing for Brondby in Denmark and it’s his 48 goals in 109 appearances there that earned him that move.

Pukki was signed by Celtic while Neil Lennon was manager of the club, joining from Schalke with a strong reputation.

Yet Pukki showed very little while in Glasgow, hitting the net just nine times in 37 appearances before moving to Brondby on loan and then on a permanent basis.

It remains to be seen how Pukki copes with life in English football, but it’s safe to say he’ll have to improve from the player we saw at Celtic.
