Young midfielder Cameron McGeehan has signed a new contract with Norwich City, extending his deal at Carrow Road until the summer of 2016, with an option for a further year.
The 19-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Luton Town, making 18 appearances and scoring three goals as he helped the Hatters to gain promotion back into the Football League from the Conference.
McGeehan is yet to make his debut for the Canaries but is known well by manager Neil Adams as he captained the City under-18 team which won the FA Youth Cup under Adams' guidance in 2013.
The former Chelsea academy player was an unused substitute for City's 3-1 home win against Crawley Town in the second round of the Capital One Cup in August and has played regularly for the club in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League.
McGeehan is thought to be one of the club's youngsters who could go out on loan again this season and Luton manager John Still has made it clear he would love to take the Northern Ireland Under-21 international back to Kenilworth Road.
'We spoke to them (Norwich) and the amount of money they wanted was not for this level – not even for one up,' Still told BBC Three Counties Radio about his interest in McGeehan last week.
'I know he plays for Norwich, but he's a Luton player.'

The League Two club's boss continued: 'If it was possible to bring in Cameron McGeehan we would certainly be interested. He's a very good player,' said Still.
'We loaned players last year because we had to. We don't have to loan now.
'We want to develop our own players, but would we be interested in bringing him on a permanent? Yes we would.'
