Norwich City defender Steven Whittaker has signed a new one-year contract with the club.

The 31-year-old's current deal was due to expire this summer but he has instead been offered the chance to stay at Carrow Road.

Scottish international Whittaker struggled for game time in the Premier League last season but was a key part of the Canaries team that got promoted from The Championship two years ago.

I'm over the moon to stay here, I've really enjoyed my four years.

The manager spoke to me towards the end of the season and said it was a frustrating season for myself, but he reminded me what a great job I'd done for him in the Championship and he believes I can do that again.

I'm here, in the squad and ready to get to work again to battle for my place.

Finance expert: 'Norwich city can bounce back with wise spending'

A financial expert says Norwich City will still have an advantage over many of their opponents in The Championship next season - despite missing out on a huge bumper Premier League TV deal.

The Canaries will receive millions of pounds in parachute payments, and Mark Curtis from Norwich firm Larking Gowen has backed them to bounce straight back - providing they spend wisely in the transfer market.

As long as Norwich have structured themselves to prepare for the possibility of relegation, they should have a war chest to come back again next year.

We know the club have geared themsleves well in the past, and I see no reason why they can't bounce back with sensible finances this time as well.
