Thomas Helveg signs!

Denmark defender Thomas Helveg is in talks with Norwich about a move to the Premiership new boys.



The 33-year-old is available on a free transfer after completing his contract at Inter.


"I can confirm that we are in talks with Thomas Helveg," Norwich boss Nigel Worthington told the club's website.



Helveg played every game for Denmark at Euro 2004 as they reached the quarter-finals of the competition and was in excellent form for his country.

Helveg started his career at his hometown club Odense and has played most of his career in Italy with Udinese, Milan & Inter.


-------------------------------------------------------


Helveg would be a good signing although his age could be a concern.
But he would join on a free and slot nicely into the rightback position.

But it has to be said that Mark Edworthy did a stella job for us in that position last season.

Thomas Helveg signs!

Norwich have signed Denmark defender Thomas Helveg on a free transfer.

The 33-year-old, who can also play in midfield, has signed a two-year contract with the Premiership newcomers after leaving Inter Milan.




"After my 10 years in Italy it was nice to have the opportunity to come to England. I have chosen the right team, it has a great atmosphere," he said.

"It felt like I was coming home. I hope I can repay the faith the manager has shown in me," he told the club website.


Helveg added: "I feel sure we will succeed together. It's going to be a great challenge for me and the rest of the squad to play the best teams in England."




Canaries boss Nigel Worthington added: "It shows the gradual progress of the club in being able to attract such a player to Carrow Road.

"To have that level of knowledge and experience at the club is a great boost to us all."





Helveg played every game for Denmark at Euro 2004 as they reached the quarter-finals of the competition, and was in excellent form for his country.

He started his career at his hometown club Odense and has spent most of his career in Italy with Udinese and Inter.



----------------------------------------------


Apparently Helveg played well for Denmark during Euro 2004 (I saw very little of Denmark's games) and this is a very good signing by Worthy.

Maybe his age could be a problem, but I don't think it will be.

Helveg quits Serie A Thursday 22 July, 2004

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thomas Helveg has left Inter to join Norwich, with Kily Gonzalez set to follow him out of the San Siro exit.

The Danish right-back has signed a two-year deal with the Premiership new boys after his contract at the Italian club expired.

The stopper leaves the peninsula after 11 seasons in Serie A. He spent five years at Udinese and Milan, before a single term with Inter.

Helveg will be big help in Norwich defence even though he's 33 now. He is hard worker, I was so happy when he joined Milan from Udinese

Good Luck Tom :smileani:

Never thought I'd see Norwich City mentioned in the same news article as Inter Milan, but it's the kind of signing they need if they're to have any chance of survival in the top flight.

Yeah, around the same era as when we were title challengers . Who would have thought the race for the title would be between Man Utd, Villa & Norwich. Ahhhh...what i'd give for those time to return (well they will soon under the guidance of David O'Leary- believe me :rollani: )

Very good signing for Norwich IMO. He was impressive at Euro 2004 and I see no reason why he can'e be in the premiership.

I certainly won't. p

So will Alberto Zaccheroni be appointed as the new Norwich city coach ? As you know, he's in with Helveg and follows him everywhere he goes.

Good luck in the EPL, Helveg. :thmbup:

Thomas Helveg scored at least one goal for Milan too. The winner against Deportivo late 2000.

Just for the record: Thomas Helveg is my favourite Danish player so I'll keep a look on Norwich´.

Yada, yada

Helveg scored 6 goals in Serie A for Udi (don't know about Coppa Italia) and two for Milan - one as mentioned against Depor and a goal in Coppa at the beginning of the 98/99 season. He's never exactly been much of a goalscorer.

Anyway, 11 years in Italy, that's impressive and probably much more than expected when he first arrived there.

I wish him good luck in the EPL.

Helveg not scared of Prem

Thomas Helveg claims that the Premiership won't frighten him after his time with Inter, Milan and Udinese. "There are some differences, the main thing I have noticed is that the games might be more intense," said Norwich's new boy. "I don't expect to get any time to relax and to play the ball like in Italy."

Prem is tough says Helveg

Norwich defender Thomas Helveg claims the Premiership is much harder than Serie A. "Here you will never ever have a break," said the ex-Milan and Inter star. "It is quite different in Italy, when the ball is out of play everybody has an easy time. Here you cannot just stand and look. You have to concentrate 100 per cent of the time."

He hasn't quite adjusted to the Prem yet.


He played the full 90 minutes in our first 2 games against Crystal Palace & Man Utd but was then dropped to the bench.

He was an unused sub against Newcastle & Arsenal, then came on late on against Spurs yesterday.


He is an experienced international player and I believe that he will win his place back before too long.

Helveg's first team opportunities have been limited as of late,
and he is understandably unhappy about this.



Thomas has admitted he has spoken to Norwich manager Nigel Worthington and made it clear his patience is running out.

"This is not an ideal situation for me," said Helveg.

"I have had a conversation with the manager and I told him that I am not at all satisfied with the lack of playing. The club know that my patience is running out now.

"I am definitely not satisfied with the fact that the reality is not the same as the response I get from the manager.

"He tells me he thinks I am doing well at training and is satisfied with what I am doing and that it is going good. But that doesn't go with the fact that he doesn't use me. I have not had an explanation that I can use."



I remember he had a poor first-half against Everton while playing on the right of midfield as was taken off at the break, but Edworthy is currently number 1 at rightback - so it is hard for helveg to get into thew side currently.
