Norwich City defender Russell Martin has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The deal will see the right-back's stay at Carrow Road extended to 2016.

Martin said: 'I'm extremely delighted - everyone knows how I feel about playing for this football club.

'Since I first arrived here it's gone unbelievably well and I feel really settled in the area.

'I'm happy playing for this club and I've got a great relationship with the players, staff and the supporters, and I'm just delighted to be here for another three years.'

Canaries boss Chris Hughton said: 'It's about players earning a new deal and I'm delighted to be extending Russell Martin's contract.

'Russ has played his full part not just in helping us to achieve our finishing position last season, but of course in the club's massive successes over the previous three seasons and he's certainly earned his new contract.'
