Norwich City Football Club have announced that midfielder Jonny Howson has signed a contract extension which will see him remain at the club until 2018.
The 25-year-old joined Carrow Road from Championship outfit Leeds United back in January 2012 and since then, he has gone on to make 60 appearances and has scored five goals for Chris Hughton’s side along the way.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Howson admitted that there was no question about signing the new deal and revealed that as soon as he heard about the offer, he was always going to accept it.
“As soon as I found out there was an offer there I was very interested in getting it signed,” he told the Canaries’ website.
“I’ve really enjoyed the season so far and have had a good run in the side.”
Norwich manager Chris Hughton also revealed his delight at the midfield-man penning a new deal.
“A new contract comes in line with Jonny’s form this season, which has seen him be a mainstay of the team and put in some impressive performances, ” Hughton said.
“In the period of time that Jonny’s been here, there’s been progression in his influence in the team and in the matches.
“We’re delighted to be able to secure his services for the next four-and-a-half years.”
