He also claims that Premier League sides Chelsea and Arsenal are showing an interest in him after his recent performances.

Aarons has burst onto the scene at Norwich this season and made ten first-team appearances to date – with his only goal coming against Cardiff in the League Cup.

Norwich have already announced new deals for young players Jamal Lewis and Louis Thompson earlier today.
