Norwich star signs up

18th June 2019, 13:57 by Michael Holland

Kenny McLean has signed a new three-year contract with Norwich following promotion back to the Premier League.

The Scotland international joined the Canaries from Aberdeen in January 2018 but spent the rest of the campaign on loan at Pittodrie.

McLean, 27, saw his progress at the start of last season hampered by an ankle injury, but went on to become an integral part of Daniel Farke's team which secured the Sky Bet Championship title.

"It was obviously a very exciting season and it will live long in the memory. I was so proud to be a part of it," he said on the Norwich website.

"To be here for another three years is excellent for me. I feel I've settled in really well to the club and the city and there are now exciting times ahead."

During Norwich's promotion celebrations, midfielder McLean took to the microphone to address the crowds and declare himself the city's new major.

"There's no doubt it, (promotion) was the highlight of my career so far. I think you could see the joy throughout the whole city - it was amazing to be a part of," McLean added.

"It will be something that I'm sure everybody will remember for a long time.
