Young stopper currently on loan at Burton AlbionNORWICH City goalkeeper Remi Matthews has penned a new two-year contract, keeping him with the Club until at least the summer of 2017.
The 21-year-old spent time on loan with Sky Bet League Two champions Burton Albion last term, and recently completed a temporary return to the Pirelli Stadium until January.
Gorleston-born Matthews, who has been with City’s Academy since the age of 10, told canaries.co.uk: “I’m delighted to sign a new deal at the Club, because this is where I want to be.
“I’ve been at Norwich a long time and have another year to impress now. In the long-run, I want to play here, although I’m focussing on my loan move and hopefully getting some games under my belt first.”
The youngster will be targeting a starting spot for Burton’s opening Sky Bet League One fixture against Scunthorpe United on August 8, with regular number one Jon McLaughlin set to serve a one-match suspension.
However, Matthews is taking nothing for granted, and added: “I can’t go into pre-season expecting to play the first game.
“There are another couple of goalkeepers below who will be pushing for it as well, so we’ll have to see what happens. I’m there for six months so the aim is to play as many games as possible and then take it from there.”
