Christoph Zimmermann wants to continue his positive start to life as a Norwich City player after penning a new three-and-a-half year deal.
The German centre-half has become a popular figure at Carrow Road following his summer arrival from Borussia Dortmund II, having initially joined on a free transfer on a deal until 2019.
Speaking to Norwich City TV about extending his stay with the Canaries, the 24-year-old said: "I've been here for about half a year now and, from the first day, it's been great.
"I was thinking I maybe had to prove myself in the first year, to perform at this level. The two-year contract was my chance, first of all, to prove myself.
"To be rewarded with this new contract, I assume I haven't done too badly. I've mentioned it before, but in the summer I was just happy to have the chance to come here and play for Norwich.
"It's the best thing that could have happened for me and I'm looking forward to having some more years here."
Zimmermann also expressed a determination to keep playing his part for the good of the side, whenever he is given the opportunity to do so.
"I want to contribute with whatever time I have on the pitch," he added.
"If it's just two minutes, like the last game, I have to win my headers and win my duels. I have to do all I can to help the team.
"It was good to get that winning feeling back and it's something we can build upon. It's important we now have another unbeaten run."
