Bassong has committed to a fresh two-and-a-half-year with the Canaries.
The Cameroon international said: "I'm really pleased it is something I have been looking forward to doing, as being team captain I think it is something really important to commit myself even more to the Club.
"I had a little bad time with my fitness, as people know I missed pre-season and I had a knee injury and an operation, so I needed time to get back to my best and while I wasn't playing I was working hard on my fitness, so now I feel better and am back on track."
