Norwich City has confirmed Neil Adams will stay on as the club's manager having signed a three-year deal.

The 48-year-old stepped up as caretaker manager in April following the sacking of Chris Hughton but could not do enough in his five matches in charge to help the club avoid relegation from the Premier League.

In a statement, Norwich City said Adams was one of a number of candidates considered for the job.

It added: "Throughout the process his passion for the club, his commitment to playing attractive, winning football, his hunger to succeed and his desire to continue to progress young, talented players through to the first team squad shone through.

"He has the full and unanimous support of the Board and will receive robust backing in this summer’s transfer window. Announcements about coaching backroom staff will follow in due course."
