With a return to the Premier League to look forward to next season, Norwich fans were given an added boost as the club announced via their official website that Timm Klose had signed a new deal.
The Swiss international had reached the end of his existing contract, but has now extended his stay at Carrow Road until the summer of 2022.
Having seen the defender become an integral part of their Championship title-winning campaign this season, many Canaries fans took to social media to laud the club’s decision to offer him a new contract.
They feel ‘his experience and leadership next season’ could prove vital as they bid to beat the drop, and he will continue to be an invaluable figure in the Norwich dressing room.
With the Canaries also boasting some exciting emerging talent, many on Twitter feel Klose’s ‘massive character’ would make him a ‘great influence for the young lads’.
Indeed, with concerns that the defender could leave on a free at the end of the campaign, some have even expressed a sense of relief that a new deal has been sorted out, and used Klose’s contract as motivation to tackle the Premier League next season.
Check out the delighted reaction of Norwich fans below:
