Norwich City are delighted to announce that Louis Lomas has signed a new contract with the Club until the summer of 2021.
The young defender, 19, has been with the Canaries since youth level and spent two seasons in the Under-18s squad until progressing to the Under-23s this summer.
After an impressive start to the season, including ten starts, with two goals and an assist, the centre-half has been rewarded with a new deal.
Lomas says he is now relishing the opportunity to show what he’s capable of at the club.
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity. I feel like the new contract gives me more time to show what I can do, and really gives me that hope of being able to achieve what I want to achieve.
“I’m thankful that the club has put that trust in me by giving me such a chance, and I hope I show what I can do by reaching my full potential.”
“I found out about the contract very recently actually, I wasn’t expecting it so soon. I was excited to hear about it. It’s always a bonus to know that the club want to sign you up on a new deal, so I’m not complaining.”
Lomas hopes to follow in the footsteps of previous Academy colleagues Max Aarons, Todd Cantwell, Jamal Lewis, Ben Godfrey and Adam Idah by making his way into Daniel Farke's first-team.
“I think it’s a good sign of my future at the club. Everyone sees the club invest in the youth quite heavily, which is clearly seen from the first team players like those four regulars [Ben Godfrey, Max Aarons, Todd Cantwell and Jamal Lewis] who’ve made it through from the Academy.
“I honestly believe that with the chances given, it’s possible for young players to achieve, as shown in the first team.”
