Andrew Cave-Brown has become the third Norwich City youngster to sign a new deal with the club this week.

The Scottish U19 midfielder has agreed a one-year contract with a further one-year option in the club's favour, similar to the one signed by Robert Eagle, 20, on Monday.

Striker Chris Martin, 18, signed a deal to keep him at the club until 2010 yesterday.

Cave-Brown's full first team debut ended in agony last August when he damaged an ankle ligament during the 2-0 Carling Cup win at Torquay. It took him four months to recover and then spent two months on loan to King's Lynn to aid his comeback.

Cave-Brown, who will be 19 in August, told the club's official site: "Obviously this year has been quite frustrating for me. It started off so well, and then the injury has set me back and put me out until 2007 since August.

"I'm delighted and relieved as well because I couldn't really show as much as I could this season, but obviously I've got a chance next season so hopefully I can build on that and go from there."

"I wouldn't say my ankle is 100 per cent," he added. "I had an operation and they said it would only ever get back to 95-96 per cent. But I feel alright fitness-wise and my stint at King's Lynn helped me a lot with the lack of reserve team games. To go there and get a fair few games under my belt in two months was really good and really beneficial for me."
