Forward pens new contract with the CanariesCAMERON Jerome wants to hit the ground running when the new season begins in August after signing a fresh three-year deal at Carrow Road earlier this week.
The striker, whose original contract was due to expire next summer, is now set to remain with the Club until at least 2019.
Speaking exclusively to canaries.co.uk, Jerome said: "I told the manager I wanted to be here, and he said I was part of his plans.
"He's very passionate about football and wants to win while also helping the lads improve. He's a leader, and that's the kind of manager you want to play for.
"Since I first joined I’ve had a great rapport with the fans, who have been magnificent towards me. Myself and my family feel really settled, which is a big thing, so it was a no-brainer to sign on for another three years.
"I'm absolutely delighted and it's nice to get this deal over the line early on so I can come back fully focused ready for next season."
The 29-year-old forward stressed the need to not dwell on the past as City look to shake off any lingering disappointment at how their 2015-16 campaign concluded, to maximise their chances of success over the coming year.
"It’s important to mentally and physically recover in order to come back back with fresh optimism to get the job done and get promoted again," he explained.
"That’s the challenge for next season; to get promotion at the first time of asking. I've played a number of years in the Championship and it’s a very demanding league.
"With 46 games, it’s very tough and we’re going to be a target for other clubs. Teams will come here and want to raise their game in front of 27,000 people so we've got to show everyone the quality we have.
"It’s up to us as players to make sure we get the Club back to where it belongs."
