Norwich City defender Timm Klose has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The Swiss international's current deal was due to expire in the summer, but he has now prolonged his stay in Norfolk until 2022.

Klose has been a key player for the Canaries since joining from German club Wolfsburg in 2016.

He has made 118 appearances for the club since then, including 31 last season as Norwich gained promotion to the Premier League.

"I’m delighted we are playing in the Premier League next year and that was one of the reasons why I’ve chosen to stay in Norwich," Klose said.

“I love it here and I really feel at home. It’s the first time in my career I can say that, that I feel at home somewhere else other than back in Switzerland. That was another reason why I wanted to stay."

Klose's previous spell in the Premier League was ended prematurely by a serious knee injury, and the 31-year-old is looking forward to testing himself again at the highest level.

“I’m very happy that we are back there to show that we can compete with the best teams in the country," said Klose.

“As a football player, you want to be at the top. You want to play in the top divisions and play for your nation or country.

“I’m looking forward to doing that again and showing that we can compete in the Premier League.”
