Norwich City left-back Martin Olsson has signed a new one-and-a-half year deal with the club.

The 28-year-old has been consistently linked with a move away from Carrow Road, but has now decided to commit his immediate future to the Canaries.

Manager Alex Neil recently described the Swedish international, who joined from Blackburn Rovers in 2013, as the 'best left-back in The Championship'.

Olsson's old deal was due to expire at the end of this season, meaning he would have been free to talk to other clubs in January.

It's nice to get this done so now I can focus 100% on the league and trying to help us get back to the Premier League.

I enjoy it here; I enjoy this club and I enjoy this city and the fans are so passionate. It's always a great feeling to step out at Carrow Road.

Our main target is to go up. It hasn't been going that well for a few games, but that's how it is sometimes. We can turn it around, and when we do, hopefully we can earn that promotion.

MK Dons have made an official approach to speak to Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson about their vacant managerial position.

The Dons are on the lookout for a new boss after parting company with Karl Robinson last month, but have so far been unable to find the right candidate.

However, they have now asked Scottish Premiership club Hearts for permission to hold talks with 36-year-old Neilson who has been in charge at Tynecastle since 2014.

The Dons say no further comment will be made until after Hearts' SPL match against Rangers on Wednesday night.

Milton Keynes Dons Football Club can confirm it has made an official approach for Heart of Midlothian’s head coach Robbie Neilson with regards to its vacant managerial position.

The club respects that Hearts has an important fixture with Rangers in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday evening and, therefore, no further comment will be made until after that match.
