Sam Byram made his debut for Norwich on Tuesday night and boss Daniel Farke was happy with how the right-back performed. The 25-year-old only joined the Canaries from West Ham for a reported £750,000 on Tuesday morning, but he was immediately thrust into action during a behind-closed-doors game against German club Bonner SC – a match Norwich won 4-1.

Byram played 45 minutes of the friendly success and he even provided an assist for one of the goals. Farke was pleased with the performance of the former Leeds youngster, particularly given his whirlwind arrival at the club, although he knows it will also take him a while to get up to speed with the club’s style of play. “Sam was alright. It’s pretty difficult because it was pretty busy for him over the last couple of days,” Farke told the club website.
“He had a long travel yesterday, he trained also this morning. “We got the feeling it was for the best, although he doesn’t have all the information about our game, to throw him into the mix. “He was there with some really good scenes, especially in the offence. He had a brilliant assist for one goal but one or two scenes in the defence that we have to work on a bit but it’s good that he was able to join us this quick. It will help him to settle in here.”
