Striker Cody McDonald's contract with Norwich City has been extended until the summer of 2012.

The Canaries confirmed last night that the 23-year-old McDonald had agreed the extension after playing enough matches to trigger a two-year clause in his original deal.

The former Dartford forward is currently sidelined with a thigh strain after scoring four times in 24 appearances this season, though all but six of those outings have been as a substitute.

He came off the bench to snatch a late winner in the 2-1 victory at Walsall in January and scored the equaliser in the 2-1 home win over Hartlepool four days later.

In all, McDonald has five goals in 31 senior appearances for the club, coming off the bench to grab a goal on his debut in the 2-0 Championship win over Cardiff at Carrow Road 12 months ago.

McDonald was signed by former City boss Bryan Gunn following a prolific spell with the Darts, when he scored 19 goals in 20 appearances during the first half of the 2008-09 campaign.
