Norwich captain Grant Holt has signed a new three-year contract to keep him at Carrow Road until 2014.

The 29-year-old striker has scored 21 times in 41 league and cup appearances so far this season and moved past the 50-goal mark for the club with a hat-trick against Scunthorpe at the weekend.

He told the club`s official website: "It has been a good week. Everyone knows how much I enjoy being here; in this city and at this club so it really has been a fantastic week and I'm just pleased to get it done and sorted for the summer."


He added: "It's come at a great time and I'm here to score goals and get this club back where it should be and we're on the brink of that now.

"If the next three years are anywhere near as good as the last two have been I'll be absolutely delighted. My aim is to get this club back into the Premier League and I've got three years to do that now."

Norwich manager Paul Lambert added: "Grant deserves this new contract for the way he has played for us since he came here.

"We made him captain for the benefit of the team but also to spur him on and he has responded. His performance levels have been really high and his goalscoring record speaks for itself."
