Midfielder commits long-term future to Carrow Road club.
Norwich City midfielder Bradley Johnson has committed his future to the Carrow Road club after signing a new contract.
The 25-year-old Johnson’s current deal was due to expire at the end of next season, but he has ended speculation about his future by putting pen to paper on new terms through to the summer of 2016.
The tigerish midfielder has been a near ever-present in Chris Hughton’s Premier League side this season, appearing 27 times in all competitions, and was rewarded for his performances with the new deal.
“I’m absolutely delighted,” Johnson told Norwich City’s official website. “As soon as I heard that the club wanted to sit down and sort a new deal I just wanted to get it done and I’m delighted that it has.
“I think I’m playing the best football of my career and I’m playing in the best league in the world. I think this is a club that is moving forward and I want to be a part of that. We’ve proved that we’re good enough to be here and we know how hard it is to stay in this league, but we work as hard as we can to do exactly that.”
Johnson moved to Norwich City from Leeds United on a free transfer in 2011 when his contract with the Elland Road club expired. He has made 57 appearances in total for the Canaries over the past two seasons.
Johnson started his professional career with Cambridge United before making a name for himself at Northampton Town, who sold him to Leeds United for £250,000 in 2008. He had three successful seasons at Leeds prior to joining Norwich City.
