The former Norwegian international has been a regular for Norwich in the top flight this season.

Tettey's new deal will run until the summer of 2021.

“It’s massive for me. It feels so good to be in Norwich and my family are happy. When my family is happy, I’m happy. I have been for many years since I’ve been here, so it’s nothing new to me, but it’s a very big and positive thing for me," Tettey said.

“There have been a few ups and downs throughout my time, but Wembley was a standout moment [winning the play-off final in 2015], as was winning the Championship trophy in 2019. They were huge.”

Head Coach Daniel Farke added: “We’re totally delighted and happy that Alex has committed himself to be a part of our group. It’s a great decision for both parties.

“Alex is a fully accepted leader in our group and a role model for our younger players, and the quality of his performances have been really important.”
