Norwich have had a £1.5million bid for Stoke City striker Jonathan Walters turned down.

Walters has slipped down the Britannia Stadium pecking order in recent times and is currently behind Mame Biram Diouf, Joselu, Bojan and Peter Crouch in the squad.

The 29-year-old defender joined the club from Tottenham in 2012 when Chris Hughton was manager and, beyond spending part of the past season on loan at Watford, has remained an important figure since.

"I'm very happy to have signed this contract," Bassong, who returned to Norwich's first team under manager Alex Neil, told the club's official website.

"It's been an enjoyable time recently, getting promoted and achieving what we wanted to achieve. It provided great satisfaction for all of us.

"I enjoy playing for this team. Bit by bit, it is getting better and I feel better, and the manager has played a big part in that. I owe him a lot because he gave me my chance back in the team."
