Hoolahan signs new Norwich deal


Ireland international Wes Hoolahan has signed a new two-year deal with Norwich City.

Manager Alex Neil says Hoolahan will be a key player in the Canaries' bid to return to the Premier League at the first attempt following last season's relegation to the Championship.

"Wes has always been a special player for us," he said.

"More often than not, he’s the one I turn to when I need someone to deliver something for me, and he never really lets me down.

"He’s a quality player. We all know his qualities. He’ll be key for us this year."

The 34-year-old joined Norwich from Blackpool in 2008, and has made 338 appearances for the Carrow Road club in all competitions over the previous eight seasons, scoring 45 times.

The Dubliner, who was a key player in Ireland's run to the last 16 at Euro 2016, has impressed in Norwich's pre-season games, scoring both goals in the 3-2 defeat to Hannover 96 at Carrow Road on Saturday, and another from long distance in the 3-0 home win over Coventry City on Tuesday.
