Norwich City midfielder Jonny Howson has signed a new four-year contract with the club.

The 27-year-old has been a key figure since arriving from Leeds United in 2012 and has now played over 100 games for the Canaries.

Howson scored nine goals last season as Norwich regained their place in the Premier League.

"I'm really pleased, especially after last season going so well.

Since the manager has come in everyone knows how well we've done, and I'm excited to remain a part of that. That's not to say it's going to be simple, because you always have to keep working hard.

If everyone does that then I'm sure we'll have a good season."

Norwich City midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu has been ruled out for "several weeks" after breaking his metatarsal.

The 28-year-old limped out of the Canaries' 2-1 friendly win over Brentford on Saturday (August 1), and tonight their worst fears have been confirmed.

Mulumbu joined Norwich on a free transfer this summer.

“Unfortunately Youssouf has a fractured metatarsal which requires immediate surgery.

We anticipate his recovery should take several weeks and this is something we will be able to assess further after the operation has taken place today.”

Norwich City have confirmed that former manager Neil Adams has returned to the club.

Adams resigned in January with the Canaries stuttering in The Championship, and was replaced by Hamilton Academical boss Alex Neil.

After a break away from football, Neil is now back at Carrow Road and will oversee the development of Norwich players who move on loan to other clubs.

"We are delighted to welcome Neil back to Colney as we said we would when his time as our manager came to an end in January.

Neil has always been a fantastic servant to this Football Club and his knowledge of players, his coaching experience and his understanding of the modern loan market will all be a huge asset in this newly-created role.

This will help the club to ensure our players receive maximum benefit from their time spent on loan and provide best-in-class monitoring of their progress while playing with other clubs.

In addition, the loan market is an increasingly significant element of financial activity for top clubs and Neil will be responsible for helping us to maximise our efficiency in this area of our strategy.”

– David McNally, Norwich City Chief Executive

Adams says that he is glad to be back and is looking forward to the challenge ahead.
