Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy has signed a new contract with the club which will keep him at Carrow Road until 2017.
The England international has put pen to paper on a fresh four-year deal, with the club having the option of a further year.
27-year-old Ruddy, who signed from Everton back in 2010, was previously linked with a move to Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
The Canaries shot stopper told the club's official website that he was thankful for the faith shown in him:
“I’m more than happy to commit my long-term future to the Club.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Norwich City – everyone has been very supportive. The whole Club, the players and staff I have worked with have been fantastic.
“I’ve broken into the England squad while at Norwich, and without the opportunity they gave me I wouldn’t have been anywhere near it. I was in a bit of a no-man’s land before I joined the Club, and they took a gamble on me.
“Thankfully I think it’s paid off for both sides and now I’m just looking to keep up my form.”
