Norwich City have rewarded young full-back Harry Toffolo for his progress with a new two-year contract, keeping him with the Canaries until at least the summer of 2017.

The 20-year-old recently made his senior debut for City in a Capital One Cup second round victory at Rotherham United, having impressed on loan in League One with Swindon last season.

The left-back was part of the Canaries' under-18 team which won the FA Youth Cup in 2013 and now looks to have done enough to persuade City manager Alex Neil that he can be an asset for the club in the future.

'It's really good to have put pen-to-paper with Norwich, it shows that the club is backing me,' Toffolo told City's official website.

'After a strong year with Swindon last season and a pre-season with the first team here, it proves that if you work hard you get given opportunities.

'Norwich is my club. I joined at a young age, moving away from home but this is my home now. My long-term goal is to do the best that I can at Norwich City.'

The England Under-20 international, who is also eligible to represent Italy due to his family roots, played 30 matches for Swindon last season and scored one goal.

He then played a full part in City's pre-season campaign, with first-choice left-back Martin Olsson unavailable while recovering from shoulder surgery.

Summer signing Robbie Brady has played at left-back in the Premier League so far, although Olsson played for Sweden on Saturday night and could be fit to return to first-team action with City against Bournemouth on Saturday.
