Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey has signed a four-year contract extension with the club.

The Canaries have confirmed that Godfrey has put pen to paper on a new long-term deal with the club, extending his stay until 2021.

The defender impressed in pre-season and has been rewarded with a bumper new contract to secure his future at Norwich for the foreseeable future.

Godfrey played the second most amount of minutes in pre-season, only second to Christoph Zimmermann, and showed his versatility in a number of positions.

Godfrey is capable of playing centre-back, right-back and in holding midfielder. This makes him an excellent option for Daniel Farke this season.

The 19-year-old broke into the first-team set-up last season under Alex Neil and made six appearances during the campaign.

He made his debut at the start of last season against Coventry in the League Cup, scoring a screamer from 20-yards after coming off the bench in a 6-1 rout.
