Jonny Howson is delighted with his new deal at Norwich City.

The midfielder has penned terms to 2018.

Howson joins team-mates John Ruddy, the England goalkeeper, and club captain Sebastien Bassong in penning contract extensions to commit their long-term futures to the Norfolk club.

The former Leeds trainee hopes to build on his promising start to the 2013/2014 campaign. He said: "As soon as I found out there was an offer there I was very interested in getting it signed. I am very settled here and happy to sign.

"I have really enjoyed the season so far and have had a good run in the side. I just want that to continue, and obviously staying here longer gives me the chance to do that."
