Norwich City: Hwang Ui-jo excited for Canaries opportunity

City were forced to react to Josh Sargent’s serious ankle ligament injury and pursued the South Korean international strongly as their prime target. 

Bournemouth striker Kieffer Moore, Jamal Lowe and a Wolves striker were also among their list of targets spearheaded by Hwang due to his profile and suitability to David Wagner’s preferred style of play. 

Hwang, 31, moved to Forest from Bordeaux back in 2022, having scored 29 times in 98 games for the French side. He is yet to make an appearance for the Premier League side but was an unused substitute in their EFL Cup win over Burnley last month. 

He arrives with City with pedigree having been named as Korean footballer of the year and featured at last year’s World Cup in Qatar. 

The striker will link up with South Korea over the international break, but both of their matches come in the United Kingdom – first a friendly against Wales in Cardiff and then Saudi Arabia at St James’ Park. 

Hwang will head to Colney and link up with his new teammates following the conclusion of that friendly in Newcastle ahead of City’s Championship return against Stoke. 

There will be a pressure on his shoulders to make an instant impact given Sargent’s absence, and he believes he is suited to the style of play Wagner is implementing at Carrow Road.

“After the international break, I’ll join the team. I’m looking forward to seeing my team mates, the coach and staff. I’m very excited to see everything,” Hwang told City’s channels after completing his loan move. 

“English football is tough. I’ll be ready every game because every player has quality and I have to do more every single day. I need to share my experience. I will do my best so the young players can see me. I want to be a good example.

“Pressing high a lot, sometimes linking the play, hardworking and togetherness. I’m excited to play here. I want to help the team as much as I can and I can’t wait.”
