Audio: Out-of-contract Adam Drury admits Norwich City future is uncertain
Adam Drury has already enjoyed a second shot at the Premier League and induction into Norwich City's Hall of Fame in his testimonial season – but he admits he doesn't yet know where his future will lie beyond the summer.
Having made his debut against Grimsby Town on March 31, 2001, the Canaries stalwart is making his 11th full campaign at Carrow Road a memorable one as City look for a top-10 finish on their Premier League return.
But with the 33-year-old out of contract in the summer, Drury admitted he does not know whether the season is a final fling or his City renaissance.
'I've got no idea – I'm just playing, trying to stay in the team and do the best I can when I'm in the team and see what happens at the end of the season,' said Drury on his contract situation.
It was a slow start to the season for the left-back, who was skipper for City's previous Premier League adventure in 2004-05. Drury had to wait until December 27 for his first top-flight outing this time around – but since then, he has made four starts and played a full part in City's three-game FA Cup campaign.
From looking out of the picture, the former Norwich skipper is finding his game feet once again.
'It's massive for me,' he said. 'At the start of the season when you are not involved, you just keep yourself fit and look after yourself, and then hope to get that chance.

'I've done enough to stay in the team because if you're not doing well then the gaffer doesn't play you – it's as simple as that.
'It doesn't matter who you are or what you do, as long as you are playing well you'll play.
'Obviously to be in the team against United – apart from the result – it was good to be out there.
'It takes a few games, having been in and out and now, having a run is great because it does takes a run of four or five games to get used to playing again.'
After the heartbreak of City's injury-time defeat to defending Premier League champions Manchester United on Sunday, Norwich will make the difficult trip to Stoke this weekend hoping to put more points towards keeping their eighth place in the Premier League table.
Drury added: 'It has been a some season, we've just got to make sure we finish it off now because it will count for nothing if we don't keep playing and putting on performances like we did against United.
'Stoke is another massive one – especially at their place. It's a tough place to go. We know the way they play, it's going to be a battle, but we'll go out and do the best we can again.'
