Remi Matthews says that he is happy to sign a new contract with Norwich and wants to keep working hard to progress further.

The club have officially announced that Matthews has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal, taking his contract to 2019.

His previous contract would have seen his deal expire at the end of the season, with Norwich looking to prolong his stay at the club.

The two-year extension also comes with a bonus year, should the club choose to use it.

Speaking to Norwich’s website, Matthews said this:

It’s nice to still be at the club, and to sign a new contract at a club where I want to be.

I’ve been here for a long time now so I’m delighted. The boss has seen something in me to give me a new deal and I’ve got to get my head down.

I’ll keep working hard and keep going from there. That’s all I can do. I want to train hard and show that I am good enough if called upon to make the step up.

Matthews signed a two-year extension shortly before leaving on loan last season, with the shot-stopper signing a new deal for the second season in-a-row.

The academy graduate has been on the bench twice for Norwich this season but is yet to make a senior appearance for the club.

He is currently behind Michael McGovern in the pecking order to be Norwich’s number two, with Angus Gunn in fine form as number one.

Gunn has kept five clean sheets in his last seven games in all competitions.
