The 25-year-old told the club’s official website: “It feels great. It’s an honour for me to sign another contract at Norwich City. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and I’m looking forward to another three years at the club.

“It has been amazing. Everyone keeps talking about these last three years at the club, winning two promotions and then staying in the Premier League.

“We’ve a new manager coming in now, and it’s a great time to build on what we did last season. Everything I’ve heard about the new manager is really good.

“He’s a football man, and a good man manager too. I haven’t met him just yet, but I’m looking forward to it as all the lads are. It’s going to be an exciting time next season.”

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton said: “Andrew did really well for Norwich last season and as manager I am pleased that he has accepted our offer of a new three-year deal.

“Since joining from Wolves he has continued to improve, and showed this by scoring some important goals in the Premier League last season.

“It’s a deal that is well-deserved, and hopefully he can pick up where he left off when we get back for pre-season.”

Surman added: “I think this has been the best season of my career. It was my second in the Premier League and it has been great.

“I think everyone has enjoyed it, and it’s exciting to see what going to happen next season now. Everyone has a point to prove whenever a new manager comes into a club, everyone will be on a level playing field again.

“You’ve got to keep proving yourself, and that’s what’s going to happen this season. Pre-season will be an important part of that - we’ve got some tough fixtures.

“The new manager coming in will give everyone a boost ahead of the new season. I’m sure that will help because everyone wants to be playing and that can only be good for the team.

“We’ve got to make sure we’re right for the first game against Fulham, and be mentally and physically there. We’ll be taking a lot of confidence in from last season as well.

“They are all going to be tough games, whether you’re playing Manchester City, or the team that finished 17th last season - it’s always going to be tough.”

  • No Wizards down here MB! Seems McNasty is sorting out existing player contracts before looking at new ones like he said. I wonder how many more like Surman are up? For some reason, PL seems to want to off load Shay Given - but we've got enough good young keepers haven't we?

  • If Hughton hasn't met him yet then who is sorting out all the contracts. (Culverhouse perhaps). Glad to see Surman's signed as he is a good midfielder

  • Good news. Interesting that he didn't name the team that finished 17th. A team that, if I'm not mistaken, are hoping to have a Lambert era of their own.

  • Firstly great news that Surman has signed a new contract. He is a class player and deserves to be rewarded in this way!! But for goodness sakes guys, you're reacting to every silly rumour coming out from the media who need to make up stories just to sell their rags. Fox, Russell Martin and now Andrew Surman have proved that they are committed to City. Ruddy is going nowhere and regardless of what Holt wants to do, I really do not think any of our squad are going anywhere near Villa Park other than to player for City in the forthcoming PL fixtures. So please concentrate more on who we are likely to sign and give the paranoia a rest!!! OTBC

  • Perhaps CH is controlling things in the manner of the Wizard of Oz? From behind a big remote control panel. The more I think of it, it`s almost as if somebody expected a managerial change and, accordingly, everything was in place. At least that`s what I`d like to think! Summer ins & outs will be V interesting. No `Ins` yet, though...... OTBC

  • Good point on Jonny Howson 'Bluelight'. With Gerrard and Parker each now the wrongside of 30, maybe it is good timing for 'our man'. Good news on Surman.

  • surman is a very good player.but after watching englands midfield struggling a bit,i reckon jonny howson would have done a job there.

  • Really reckon this could be Surman's year - clear of the injuries which hampered his first season, he was starting to look like part of the furniture end of last... one of the most most skillful boys in the squad, and great vision.

  • Must say that I am getting fed up with all this AV press speculation almost every day. Now it is Ruddy. Not sure that Butland would be the answer for us though. One wonders if he would have been Ruddy's replacement in England squad had Dave Watson (England goalkeeping coach) not been at Birmingham. Both Rudd and Steer actually have more experience. AV, put up or shut up!!

  • Now the BBC Gossip Column has Jack Butland, Brum`s 19 year-old GK, maybe coming to Norwich to replace John Ruddy, who is wanted by....Aston Villa!

  • On another attempted post, cdu, I listed all the players PL is rumoured to be after from Naaaridge. If you include Zak and Kyle it comes to about 9. If you add in Lapps as translator plus Cully & Karsa, it makes you wonder why he didn`t just stay; instead change the name of the Club to All No Vista. Yes, 3 keepers that young would be odd. Maybe Given is more likely, a part-exchange job? I`d rather we kept `Hellboy` Ruddy, though. ;-)

  • CovCanary, I think Mark Hughes will have something to say about QPR having a Lambert era! Sorry you are mistaken as Villa finished 16th with the R's in 17th. Not sure who offered the contract but good news all the same, Surman is a valuable squad member.

  • I agree with you, Kent Anglian. Seems no sense in having three `keepers that young. I`ve never seen Butland play (has anybody?) but we know that, when they`ve been called upon, Jed & Dec have been better than just OK. I wonder if Dave Watson`s GK Coach job with the FA is full-time now? He didn`t "come along a Chris", did he? I think I`ll stop twitching when CH recruits a full back and the extent of the expected raid on our existing squad is known. In the meantime, Paranoia rules OK!
