Norwegian midfielder extends stay at Carrow Road.
CITY are delighted to confirm Norwegian international midfielder Alex Tettey has signed a new two-year deal with the Canaries, with an option to extend for a further year.
The 28-year-old has committed himself to the Club until the end of June 2016 (2017 if the option is exercised) after a string of excellent performances in midfield during the City’s impressive start to their Sky Bet Championship campaign.
Tettey has played in all seven league games so far this season and weighed in with goals in the 3-0 wins against Watford and Brentford.
Overall, he has made a total of 58 appearances in all competitions for City since joining from French top-flight side Rennes for an undisclosed fee in August 2012, scoring four goals in Canary colours.
City boss Neil Adams said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Alex has extended his stay with us. He’s had a fantastic start to the season and worked very hard in midfield with Bradley Johnson and there’s no doubt that he’s a big, big player for us.”
Tettey said: “I’m delighted and happy that Norwich wants to keep me here and that we’ve been able to agree on a deal.
“Norwich as a place and as a club suits me very well.
“The project of getting us back to the Premier League is exciting. As people know we’ve started the season well and the club’s desire to get back into the Premier League is something that is attractive to me.”
