Russell Martin signs new contract with Norwich City

Norwich City's Russell Martin has signed a new contract committing himself to Carrow Road until June 2014.

The 25-year-old joined the Canaries permanently on January 4, 2010 after an initial loan spell from Peterborough United.

This season Martin is currently the top appearance maker having made 30 starts, bringing his total tally for the club to 57 games in all competitions, scoring four goals for the club.

'I'm delighted to have signed a new contract, I love it here and we're doing well and heading in the right direction,' said Martin.

The right-back is pleased with his progress so far this season: 'Playing under this manager, at this Club and with the players I have around me I feel like I have improved and hopefully people can see that.

'This new contract gives me a platform to continue that and the fans have been great since I've been here and I'm hopefully here for a few more years to come.'

Norwich City boss Paul Lambert said: 'I think he deserves it for the way he's been playing.'
