Teemu Pukki signs new Norwich City contract

3 July 2019

Norwich City are delighted to announce that Teemu Pukki has signed a new three-year contract at Carrow Road, with an option of a further year in the Club’s favour.

Pukki, 29, joined the Canaries in the summer of 2018 from Danish side Brondby and immediately hit the ground running in a yellow and green shirt.

The striker opened his City account with a goal in the Carabao Cup Round One victory over Stevenage and went onto score 30 goals in all competitions.

“It feels amazing [to have signed a new contract], said Pukki to canaries.co.uk. “I had an unbelievable first year here and everyone made it easy for me and my family for this to feel like home and we are really happy to stay here a bit longer.

“I am really proud of last season. It was the best season I have ever had and I think we will understand what we really did when we play our first game at Anfield.

“Last season will help us a lot in this season. I think the togetherness we have in this team will help us a lot and help the new players settle in.

“It’s perfect to be back, I didn’t think I would miss these guys but I did actually and it was really nice in the last couple of days to see them.”

“It was a perfect holiday, a lot happened, I got married and spent some time with my family and also had a couple of national games which went really well.

“We got two victories and I scored a couple of goals as well so it was a really nice holiday but it’s really nice to be back.”

Pukki’s career has seen him play in La Liga, Bundesliga and the Scottish Premiership with Sevilla, Schalke and Celtic.

Now ready to embark on his first season in English football’s top-flight, Pukki cannot wait to test himself against the very best.

“Always as a kid, my dream was to play in Spain but I have always been following the Premier League. It is the best league in the world so obviously I wanted to play there as well and now it’s happening, so I’m really looking forward to it.

“Almost as soon as it [the fixtures] came out, I saw the schedule and a lot of my family are Liverpool fans so it’s actually nice to start there and what better place to start with the Champions League winners. We will go there and will try to do our best and hopefully come away with a result.

“I’m looking forward to playing against all the big teams, it will be a nice experience but I can’t wait for all of the games to start."
