Norwich City central defender Christoph Zimmermann has agreed a new four-year deal with the club.

According to Football Insider, Norwich have rewarded Zimmermann for his fine form last season, by extending his current contract at Carrow Road.

Zimmermann’s deal, as it stands, expires in the summer of 2021, with Norwich now set to add a further two years to his contract.

The German central defender started last season as Daniel Farke’s third choice at the back, but quickly established himself in the side and captained the title-winners during the second half of the campaign.

Norwich won the Championship title, finishing on 94 points, and secured their place in the Premier League for next season.

Marco Stiepermann, Todd Cantwell, Michael McGovern, Timm Klose, Onel Hernandez, Tim Krul, Teemu Pukki, Kenny McLean, Ben Godfrey and Emi Buendia have all signed new deals so far this summer – with Zimmermann set to be the latest to commit his future to Norwich.
