Defender Ryan Bennett commits to Norwich City

5 August 2014

Norwich City defender Ryan Bennett has committed his future to the club by penning a new three-year deal.

The 24-year-old has made nearly 50 appearances for the Canaries since joining from Peterborough for £3 million in 2012.

His new deal will keep him at Carrow Road until 2017. Speaking to the club's website, he said: "Signing is something I was looking to do and I couldn't be happier to do it.

"Personally and family-wise, it's been an unbelievable two years with everyone around the club and I'm very happy to extend that.

"With the size of the club and the ambitions we've got for this season and the future - we want to be back in the Premier League which is where every player wants to be playing - signing this extension gives me a few extra years here and hopefully we can build that together."

Bennett made 20 appearances last season, 16 of them coming in the Barclays Premier League, as the Norfolk side were relegated to the Sky Bet Championship.

City boss Neil Adams added: "We're really delighted, Ryan's a superb young player with the range of qualities that he's got on and off the ball.

"There are very few more aggressive defenders than him, especially in the air. He's been here a few years already, and with him putting pen to paper I'm really happy."
