Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The Scottish international moved to Norfolk last summer from West Brom following a successful loan spell, but couldn't keep the Canaries in the Premier League.

Dorrans has scored three goals in 44 appearances for the club so far and had reportedly attracted interest from top flight clubs.

His new deal will keep him at Carrow Road until 2019.

The last time we were in the Championship Graham had a big part to play in getting us up.

It's good business because he'll be an important player for us this season. We want to get a balance between guys who have been there and done it before while also freshening things up.

If you look at other sides, most teams in the Championship would want a player like Graham so it was important that we hung onto him.

Norwich City have reportedly put a £20 million price tag on star winger Robbie Brady in a bid to fend off interest.

The 24-year-old enhanced his growing reputation at Euro 2016 where he scored twice for the Republic of Ireland.

That form led to admiring glances from several Premier League clubs, including champions Leicester City.

However, they have apparently now baulked at the Canaries' valuation of Brady and are considering moving onto other targets.

Brady still has two years left on his contract at Carrow Road and manager Alex Neil has insisted that the club are under no pressure to sell their prized assets.

The Canaries were keen to land the 21-year-old and are believed to have had a £2 million offer rejected earlier this summer.

However, it now appears Villa have agreed a £5 million deal to take Tshibola to the Midlands instead.

Norwich also failed to sign free agent Steven Fletcher last week after he chose to join Sheffield Wednesday.

New Norwich City First Team Coach Alan Irvine says the Canaries are good enough to bounce back to the Premier League at the first attempt.

The Scot moved to Carrow Road over the weekend after leaving fellow Championship side Blackburn Rovers where he worked as an assistant to Paul Lambert.

Irvine takes over from Gary Holt who moved on last week, and he believes it will turn out to be a successful season.

The most important thing is that I come in and make a contribution, and that’s what I’m looking to do.

I believe the squad and management team that’s here has every chance of getting promotion. I’ve worked with quite a few of the players in the past and I’m really looking forward to doing that again.

Up until recently I was working with Paul Lambert, and he always spoke very highly of the club. Everyone from a distance has been really positive about the place and he really reinforced that.

Norwich City First Team Coach Gary Holt has left the club by mutual consent.

The Scot has had various spells at Carrow Road as a player and a coach but has now decided to seek pastures new.

Holt previously managed Falkirk before returning to Norwich in 2014 as part of Neil Adams' coaching staff.

I’ve had some great and memorable times at Norwich City both as a player and as a member of the coaching staff.

Now the time is right for me to seek a fresh challenge as a Head Coach or Manager and I want to thank everyone at the Club and the fans for their support for me over the years.

The 22-year-old passed a medical on the south coast today and moves to St Mary's for a fee believed to be in the region of £11 million.

Birmingham City will be entitled to some of the transfer fee after they inserted a sell-on clause when they sold him to Norwich.

He tweeted the following tribute to Norwich City and their fans, and says he hopes to see them in the Premier League again soon.
