PREMIER League side Norwich City are taking a break from their hectic schedule at a training camp in Nerja.
Paul Lambert’s squad are being put through their paces at the town’s stadium ahead of this weekend’s clash with Wigan Athletic.
The trip is something of a homecoming for Sevilla-born defender Daniel Ayala, who joined the Canaries in a 100,000 euro deal from Liverpool last summer.
The club – whose majority shareholder is Delia Smith – are staying at the Nerja Club Hotel, which boasts its own spa and an outdoor pool.
“Nerja’s sporting facilities are excellent and they have adapted them to our needs,” said a Norwich City spokesman.
“The welcome we have received has been fantastic, we’ve really been made to feel at home,” he added.
Local sports minister Jose Alberto Tome said: “It is very possible that Norwich will spend their pre-season here and we are looking at bringing other Premier League teams over here in the future.”
