Norwich City midfielder Alex Tettey has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

The Norwegian's current deal was due to expire this summer, but he has now agreed to extend his stay at Carrow Road.

Tettey, 32, joined the Canaries in 2012 from French club Rennes and has been a regular in Daniel Farke's side this season.

"I'm very happy to have signed because since I've been here, I've enjoyed myself," Tettey said.

"It's been a couple of months where there has been a lot of thinking with my family so I'm pleased it is now done. Norwich is a family club and that suits me a lot.

"The coach's philosophy is very good. We have learned a lot from this season. Next season, we will be even better because everyone will know what he wants from us."

Head Coach Daniel Farke says that Tettey's experience is invaluable with such a young squad at his disposal.

"We want to keep our key players and Alex is 100 per cent one of our key players. We have a young group so need experienced players who are able to lead and help them develop," said Farke.

"We want players who are desperate to play here and Alex has a strong identification with the club. I'm really happy he's signed a new contract."
