Norway international extends Carrow Road stay
ALEX Tettey is looking forward to the future after signing a new two-year contract with Norwich City on Friday.
The Norway international, who moved to Norfolk from Rennes in 2012 after starting his career with Rosenborg, is now set to stay at Carrow Road until at least the summer of 2018.
"I'm delighted because if I'm here in 2018 it means I will have been here for six years," he told Norwich City TV in an exclusive interview.
"That would be the same amount of time I spent with my former club in Norway, which is a really big deal for me. I'm very pleased with the faith and trust Norwich have put in since I've been here.
"I'm really pleased and feel very privileged to be continuing my relationship with the club."
Tettey is now eager to focus on the Canaries' upcoming league campaign; their warm-up meeting with Hannover this weekend rounding off the pre-season schedule of Alex Neil's men.
"It's a massive season for us and hopefully we can go on to do well," the popular midfielder added.
"We have a game on Saturday, but then the proper matches start away to Blackburn a week later. I'm going to give everything I can to help us get back to the Premier League.
"It's a huge task but I'm very happy to be part of it. Knowing you've done it before is very important, and we have players who have experience of the Championship.
"That will help the team when we face different scenarios and challenges this year."
