Norwich City are delighted to announce that full-back Max Aarons has signed a professional contract with the Club until 2021.
Aarons, 18, has been with the Club since 2016 after joining from Luton Town and following an impressive season with City’s development squads, the youngster has committed his future to the Canaries.
Speaking to canaries.co.uk, Aarons said: “A first big professional deal is what I’ve been working towards since I joined the Club.
“I’m really glad that it has come at this time. The season went really well and especially towards the end of the season to be captain as well, it was really special.
“This is the next step and I’m looking forward to testing myself at the next level.”
Aarons spent the majority of last season playing for Matt Gill’s Under-23s where he made 22 appearances in all competitions, also captaining the side in their final four games of the season.
He also made a significant contribution to the Under-18s as they reached the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup, playing every minute of City’s four matches in the competition.
And after featuring in a number of first-team training sessions towards the end of the 2017-18 campaign, Aarons is aiming to impress Daniel Farke and his coaching staff once pre-season begins.
“It’s been nice to have a little break over the past month or so but I’m really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things,” Aarons continued.
“I can’t wait to get back into pre-season. Flying out to Germany is something I’m looking forward to so hopefully we can have a really good pre-season.
“It’s down to me to impress in pre-season and the main aim for me is to push towards the first-team and hopefully I can do that.”
