Norwich City Academy forward Abu Kamara has signed his second professional contract with the club through to 2025.
The 18-year-old joined the club at Under-11s level and has represented each age group since then, going on to sign his first professional contract in January 2021.
Last season, Kamara found the back of the net seven times in the Under-18s Premier League and scored an FA Youth Cup hat-trick against Wolverhampton Wanderers at St. George’s Park.
That form saw him progress through to the Under-23s team, where he scored three goals in seven games towards the end of 2020-21.
This season, Kamara has already netted six times in seven Premier League 2 matches.
“Words can’t even describe how I feel at the moment,” he told canaries.co.uk. “It has been such a short space of time since I got offered my first pro contract and for me the second contract is just very rewarding for me and my family.
“It’s good working with people like Steve Weaver, Greg Crane, Alan Neilson and Joe Shulberg. Every day I come in and they keep telling me to ‘work with intensity’ and that is what I have been doing.
“To progress through the ranks at Norwich City means a lot to me because they took me on board when no other team would and they have just treated me like family. I really appreciate that from them.”
