Remi Matthews signs new City contract

6 October 2017

Norwich City goalkeeper Remi Matthews has signed a new deal until the summer of 2019, with an option in the club's favour.

A product of the Canaries' Academy set-up, Matthews is yet to make a senior appearance for City but has been named as a substitute twice this season.

He has also gained first team experience elsewhere, taking in two loans stints at Burton Albion before spending the last campaign with Hamilton Academical.

Speaking to after signing his deal, Matthews said: "It's nice to still be at the club, and to sign a new contract at a club where I want to be.

"I've been here for a long time now so I'm delighted. The boss has seen something in me to give me a new deal and I've got to get my head down.

"I'll keep working hard and keep going from there. That's all I can do. I want to train hard and show that I am good enough if called upon to make the step up."

Head Coach Daniel Farke added: "I am really happy with this news.

"Remi is still young as a goalkeeper and has a lot of potential. He has faced a lot of competition this season but has a brilliant character and a great working attitude.

"In the last period he was improved week-to-week and when he continues with this attitude we will have a lot of joy with him in our future."
