Norwich City trio Jamal Lewis, Max Aarons and Louis Thompson have all signed new contracts with the club.

Left-back Lewis, 20, has been a regular for the Canaries since breaking into the first-team last December, while right-back Aarons, 18, made his league debut against rivals Ipswich Town earlier this season.

Their performances have reportedly attracted interest from several Premier League clubs, but their new deals will now keep them at Carrow Road until June 2023.

Midfielder Thompson has also committed his future to the club until 2022 after making a successful comeback from a long-term injury.

“Jamal (Lewis) has grown-up so much that we don’t speak about him so much as a young player anymore," Head Coach Farke said.

“His performances are so grown-up, and he’s now really experienced. He’s always there with a high consistency and he’s a real fixed point in our plan.

“Max (Aarons) is just 18-years-old, it’s outstanding at such a young age with such good performances. I hope we can develop him further.

“Louis (Thompson) was out for two years and that’s a pretty long period for a player on professional football level, but he was always there with such big passion for this club and for this group and even during his rehab he was close to the team and desperate each and every day to be together with the boys and work so hard."
