Norwich City midfielder Alex Tettey has signed a new two-year contract at Carrow Road.

The Norwegian international has been a regular in the Canaries side since joining from Rennes four years ago.

30-year-old Tettey has made more than 100 appearances for the club in that time, scoring six goals.

He was forced to sit out the last few months of Norwich's survival bid last season after he picked up a serious ankle injury.

I'm really pleased and feel very privileged to be continuing my relationship with the club.

Norwich have put trust and faith in me since I've been here, which is really good. It's a massive season for us and hopefully we can go on to do well.

I'm going to give everything I can to help us get back to the Premier League. It's a huge task but I'm very happy to be part of it.

– Alex Tettey, Norwich City

Meanwhile, fellow Canaries midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu is in advanced talks with Marseille according to reports in the French media.

Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty has been charged by the FA for allegedly breaking betting rules.

It's alleged that back in February the Northern Irishman breached rule E8 which prohibits players from betting on football matches.

Norwich weren't in league action on the day in question (February 20).

It is alleged that on 20 February 2016, the Norwich City forward placed a bet on the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of, or occurrence in, a football match or competition in breach of FA Rule E8.

Lafferty has until 5 August 2016 to respond to the charge.

Strict rules preventing anyone involved in the sport betting on matches came into force two years ago.

Norwich City striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel has joined Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old signed for the Canaries in a club record £8.3 million deal from Sporting Lisbon back in 2013 but only scored two goals in all competitions for the club.

Van Wolfswinkel was loaned out to St Étienne and Real Betis in recent seasons but failed to earn a permanent deal at either club.

He has now returned to Vitesse where he started his career.

Ipswich Town boss itching to get new season underway

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy admits he can't wait for the new Championship season to start.

The Irishman isn't a fan of pre-season and says he is itching to get back to competitive action.

McCarthy is also hoping to have another look at trialist Roland Lamah in Town's final pre-season game against Belgian club Royale Union Saint-Gilloise on Saturday.

"I don't like pre-season games because there's no intensity to them," McCarthy told ITV News Anglia.

"It's impossible to treat it as the exact same as a league game. So roll on the sixth of August for me."

Norwich City manager Alex Neil says the club want a quick resolution in their bid to sign a new striker.

The Canaries are short of options up front and are actively looking to secure some fresh firepower before the start of The Championship season.

Fulham's Ross McCormack is believed to be at the top of their wishlist, with some reports suggesting that a £10 million bid has been rejected.

Neil says Norwich are still hopeful of landing their number one target but admits the club can't afford to wait much longer.

“I have stressed we have to get a decision one way or the other and that is the point we are reaching now,” he told the media following Norwich's 3-0 friendly win over Coventry City on Tuesday.

“Like always, you move on if it doesn’t happen. We can’t let it run on.

“I'm trying my best. I'm hoping as soon as possible we are going to get someone in. We are prepared to pay the going rate. You either join in or get left behind.”
