Full-back agrees new contract with the Canaries

NORWICH City full-back Martin Olsson has signed a new one-and-a-half year deal with the Club.

On Monday, Olsson, 28, put pen to paper on a deal that sees him extend his stay at Carrow Road until the summer of 2018.

He told "It's nice to get this done so now I can focus 100% on the league and trying to help us get back to the Premier League.

"I enjoy it here; I enjoy this club and I enjoy this city and the fans are so passionate. It's always a great feeling to step out at Carrow Road.

"Our main target is to go up. It hasn't been going that well for a few games, but that's how it is sometimes. We can turn it around, and when we do, hopefully we can earn that promotion."

Olsson joined from Blackburn Rovers for an undisclosed fee in July 2013, making 37 appearances during his first campaign with the Canaries.

The Sweden international was an important part of City's squad when they regained promotion to the Premier League during the 2014-15 season, featuring in the play-off final triumph over Middlesbrough.

He has played 122 times so far for the Club, and will be back in contention for a place in Alex Neil's squad against Brentford on Saturday after serving a one-match suspension at the weekend.

Neil added: "Martin has been a consistent performer for me since I've been here, so it's very positive news that he has signed this new deal with the club.

"He will be a key member of our squad going forward as we look to improve our form in the league and move back up the table."
