Academy Manager Richard Money said: "Michee and Ebou have played a big part in helping the Under-23s reach two cup semi-finals this season and we are pleased to offer them the opportunity to stay with the Club for another year.

"We are also delighted to announce that a total of nine scholars have been offered professional contracts for next season.

"We would like to thank Jamie, Ray, Ben, Conor and Toby for their efforts this season and we believe that we've given them the best opportunity to progress their careers away from Norwich City."

Of the nine scholars to have been offered professionals contracts, McIntosh and Wallis have been with the Academy since Under-8, while Pollock and Higgs joined in the Foundation Phase.

Aransibia, Sambu and Ashley-Seal all joined the Academy at Under-14 level, with Ellesley moving to City from Tottenham Hotspur as an Under-16.

Aarons, a first-year scholar from Milton Keynes who has featured in the last three Under-23 games, has also been offered his first pro contract with the Club.

Da Costa has been offered a third year as a scholar due to him missing the 2016-17 season through injury.

Everyone at Norwich City Football Club would like to wish all those players departing all the very best for their respective futures.
