Norwich midfielder Alexander Tettey announces retirement plans

Norwich City midfielder Alexander Tettey has announced his retirement plans.

Tettey has a contract with Norwich to the summer of 2021.

By that time, he will be 35 years old, and he told Dagbladet: "I don't know how well the body can handle the contract, but in 2021 it's over.

"Then I'm too old. My body can't stand it.

"It's a health decision I've made, and it's fine. I have played in Norway many years before I went abroad, so it does not feel bitter. But I'm thinking of going home to Norway with my family when my contract ends."
