Kenny McLean has become the latest player to sign a new long-term contract with Norwich City.

Timm Klose, Tim Krul, Michael McGovern, Marco Stiepermann and Onel Hernández have all committed their futures to the club following promotion to the Premier League and Scottish midfielder McLean has now joined the list.

McLean moved to Carrow Road from Aberdeen in January 2018, but was immediately loaned back to his old club.

He suffered a serious ankle injury in the early part of last season, but forced his way into the team at the turn of the year and established himself as a key player as the Canaries won the Championship title.

He famously had fans in hysterics at Norwich's recent promotion parade, as he declared himself the new 'Mayor of Norwich.'

McLean's new deal will run until 2022.

“To be here for another three years is excellent for me. I feel I’ve settled in really well to the club and the city and there are now exciting times ahead," Mclean said.

“There’s no doubt it was the highlight of my career so far. I think you could see the joy throughout the whole city – it was amazing to be a part of.

“It will be something that I’m sure everybody will remember for a long time. Hopefully, there’s more special moments and memories to come but the end of the season there was the pinnacle of my career.”
