Midfielder pens contract in breakthrough campaign

NORWICH City are pleased to confirm that Louis Thompson has penned a new two-and-a-half year deal with the Club, with an option for a further 12 months.

The 21-year-old signed on the dotted line on Tuesday, committing his future to the Canaries until at least the summer of 2019.

Thompson has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Carrow Road, making his first-team debut in August’s EFL Cup win over Coventry City and subsequently appearing five more times for Alex Neil’s side prior to his recent injury setback.

He told "It's my first season really playing here and I've thoroughly enjoyed it.

"I'm hoping this can be the beginning for me and I can push on from here. The manager has had faith in me, which I'm thankful for.

"I hope I've repaid that in some way in the games that I've played and long may that continue." 

Thompson, a Wales Under-21 international, progressed through the youth ranks at Swindon Town, coming on for his debut as a 17-year-old in a cup tie against Aston Villa in October 2012.

The midfielder moved to Norwich for an undisclosed fee in September 2014, immediately returning on loan to the Robins for the 2014-15 campaign. He had two further temporary spells at the County Ground last season.

Neil added: "Louis has done well. He's another young lad who we've introduced to the team this year, there are quite a few of them who have had an opportunity.

"This is something we've been looking towards and hopefully we can get him back from injury sooner rather than later."
