Norwich manager Paul Lambert has committed his future to the club by signing a new and improved contract.

Lambert, who had strongly been linked with the Celtic job, led the Canaries to the League One title last season after taking over in August following the sacking of Bryan Gunn.

Assistant manager Ian Culverhouse and head of football operations Gary Karsa as well as chief executive David McNally have also put pen to paper on new and improved contracts.

Chairman Alan Bowkett told the club's official website: "We're delighted he has signed a new deal and demonstrated his commitment to carrying on the job he has made such a fine start to here at Norwich.

"Paul shares the board's ambition and progressive ideals as we work hard together towards our ultimate goal of getting Norwich City back into the Premier League."

He added: "Paul has done a fantastic job for us since joining in August and has played his full part in restoring some pride to Norwich City Football Club.

"There's been a lot of speculation linking him to other clubs and that's understandable as he is an excellent young manager with a competent and motivated coaching team backing him up."
