Norwich midfielder Jacob Sørensen happy penning new contract

Norwich City midfielder Jacob Sørensen has signed a new contract extension at the club, taking his stay with the Canaries through to June 2024, with a club option to extend by a further year.

The 23-year-old signed for City from Esbjerg fB ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Sørensen said: “It's an amazing club with amazing people working here. I'm just looking forward to seeing the fans.

“It was a big step for me, my first time abroad, but I also think that it was the right step to develop myself and come to a good place, good team and a good club, so it's been a good year."

Head coach Daniel Farke also told the club's website: “With Jacob, he has already played a major role in our title-winning season. He may not have played too much in his preferred position of central midfield, but he has shown great consistency and quality on an emergency basis at full-back. That's a real sign of his qualities as a player and he's a fantastic character with a very smart head on young shoulders.

“He's a player who is growing day to day. He has great passing skills and capabilities to read the game. He's also brave and good in possession, but also reliable against the ball. He is of course a central midfield player, but is someone who is capable of playing in the defensive line.

“For me, he is a really important member of our squad. His new contract is well deserved. For us it's really good news that we will have a player like Jacob Lungi Sørensen around for the future."
