Teemu Pukki happy to see Norwich contract extended

Teemu Pukki is happy committing to Norwich City for next season.

Pukki is pleased that questions over his future at Norwich City will stop after the club announced its intention to activate a one-year extension of his deal.

His contract was due to expire at the end of this season but the club have activated a clause in their favour that will see the 32-year-old remain at Carrow Road beyond the summer.

If there is interest from elsewhere, they will have to buy the striker outright.

Whilst his future beyond next season can wait, Pukki is glad that the speculation has concluded.

"I'm just focusing game by game this season. I haven't even thought about next season yet," City's striker said after meeting supporters at the Fan Hub.

"It is nice that the question won't be asked anymore. I'm just playing this season and then we will see what happens next year. I just want to stay in the league with Norwich, that is my aim.

"This is a great place to play and I've enjoyed my time here. We will see what happens. Right now, I'm just focusing on the games ahead."
