Norwich City striker Josip Drmic is facing a legal battle with his former advisor over his move to Carrow Road.
That’s according to Sport 1, who report that ‘proceedings are underway’ against the Norwich forward following his move last summer.
Drmic joined the Canaries on a free transfer from Borussia Mönchengladbach last year and has gone on to make 16 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring three goals.
Nearly a year after making the switch, though, he is facing a court case over the transfer, courtesy of his former advisor Sören Seidel.
Sport 1 say the agent has ‘filed a lawsuit’ with the Düsseldorf Regional Court against the Norwich man, alleging that he has been ‘deprived’ of the commission he was due as part of the deal.
It’s explained that, while the move was a free transfer, Seidel claims he was owed a commission of €615,000 and has brought the case to court in an effort to get what he believes he is due.
Drmic’s stance isn’t made clear, but a ‘verbal hearing’ has been set for Monday with lawyers for the Norwich man and Seidel set to attend.
