Ben Godfrey signs new Canaries deal

11 August 2017

Norwich City’s Ben Godfrey has signed a new four-year deal with the Club, keeping him at Carrow Road until the summer of 2021.

The 19-year-old joined the Canaries from York City in January 2016, having broken into the Minstermen’s first team setup.

He made his City debut in an EFL Cup meeting with Coventry City early on in the 2016-17 season, notably coming off the bench to score spectacularly in a thumping 6-1 win.

Speaking to Norwich City TV after agreeing terms on a fresh contract, Godfrey said: "I’m really happy because I’ve been working really hard.

"From when I signed I knew it was a great club. I couldn’t ask for anything more than the faith they’re showing in me.

“Being involved quite a lot in pre-season has really made me feel part of the first team. I’m looking to get as many minutes as I can and make a difference to the team."

Head Coach Daniel Farke added: "Ben has a great working attitude in every game and training session.

"He had the second most minutes in pre-season and has great potential. It’s a good sign for all the young lads that he’s such an important part of our squad."
