Lappin signs new contract with Norwich City

Norwich City midfielder Simon Lappin has signed a new contract with Norwich City until June 2013.

The 27-year-old Scot made the most appearances last season, playing in 44 of the 46 League One games and has made 23 appearances so far this campaign.

Lappin told the club's official website: 'I think it goes without saying that I am absolutely over the moon about it, especially with the way the club is going at the minute.

'It is a great place to be playing your football and I've loved it since day one that I have been here and now I'm here for another couple of years so I am absolutely delighted.

'Confidence is high here at the moment and hopefully we can keep that going, there is a long way to go and I want to be a part of it and am delighted to be signed on for the next couple of years.'

Manager Paul Lambert said: 'Simon has done great for me during my time here and it's great for him and the club that he has signed an extension to his contract.

'He had been through a bad spell with the club before I arrived but his contribution over the past 17 months has been great and like I said it's great for him and the club that Simon will be here until 2013.'
