Norwich City keeper Remi Matthews has signed a one-year extension to his existing deal at Carrow Road which will keep the 21-year-old at the Canaries until at least the summer of 2017.

Gorleston-born Matthews recently returned to League Two champions Burton on a loan deal until January and is currently third choice behind John Ruddy and Declan Rudd at his parent club.

'I'm delighted to sign a new deal at the club, because this is where I want to be,' he told the club's site. 'I've been at Norwich a long time and have another year to impress now. In the long-run, I want to play here, although I'm focussing on my loan move and hopefully getting some games under my belt first.'

Matthews has yet to make a senior league appearances but aims to impress with the Brewers.

'I can't go into pre-season expecting to play the first game,' he said. 'There are another couple of goalkeepers below who will be pushing for it as well, so we'll have to see what happens. I'm there for six months so the aim is to play as many games as possible and then take it from there.'
