Norwich manager Chris Hughton has been handed a boost with versatile defender Russell Martin agreeing a new three-year deal.

The 26-year-old has been a pivotal part of the Canaries team since joining the club from Peterborough in January 2010. Scotland international Martin, who can play at right back or in the centre of defence, will remain at Carrow Road until 2015.

"It's brilliant. I'm extremely delighted, my family and I are really happy around here," He told Canaries Player.
