Norwich City midfielder Alex Tettey has pledged his long term future to the Canaries by extending his Carrow Road deal until June 2016.
The Norwegian international was on target in Tuesday's 3-0 Championship win over Brentford ahead of signing a two year deal, with an option for an additional year, which could take him through to 2017. Tettey had one-year left on his original contract after City took up a previous option earlier this summer.
The 28-year-old has played in all seven league games so far this season and made 58 appearances since joining from French top-flight side Rennes for an undisclosed fee in August 2012.
'The project of getting us back to the Premier League is exciting. As people know we've started the season well and the club's desire to get back into the Premier League is something that is attractive to me,' Tettey told the club's official web site. 'I'm delighted and happy that Norwich wants to keep me here and that we've been able to agree on a deal. Norwich as a place and as a club suits me very well.'
City boss Neil Adams views Tettey as an integral part of his plans.
'I'm absolutely delighted that Alex has extended his stay with us,' he said. 'He's had a fantastic start to the season and worked very hard in midfield with Bradley Johnson and there's no doubt that he's a big, big player for us.'
