Norwich captain Grant Hanley has extended his contract for four years to keep him on Carrow Road until 2025.

The 29-year-old defender joined Norwich from Newcastle United for the first time in 2017 and has since made 106 appearances for the club, helping them to the league title last season.

Hanley, who recently represented Scotland at Euro 2020, has now signed its long-term future to Norwich as they prepare to return to the Premier League against Liverpool live on Sky Sports on August 14th.

“I’m over the moon. For me, I’m very grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given,” Hanley told the Norwich website.

“From the moment I walked through the door it was so welcoming and they made me feel like I was part of something.

“Committing my future here also means a lot to me and my family. My partner loves it here and it is so good to live.

“I now have a little girl who is almost a year old. Everything about this place is great and I’m really happy.”

Norwich head coach Daniel Farke added: “This is great news for us. We are very excited to have Grant by our side for the years to come.”

“I’ve worked with him for many years and it’s been a pleasure and a pleasure. He’s a great character and our club captain too. He’s a great footballer and a great person in the dressing room.”

“We need his quality and also his personality to be successful. It is great that he has committed his future to the football club.”
