On the day when Jamal Lewis and Louis Thompson have already signed new deals, Norwich City have just announced that another starlet has signed a new deal.
Max Aarons has been rewarded for some excellent displays, in what is becoming his breakthrough season, with an improved contract that will tie him to Carrow Road until 2023, the same as Jamal Lewis.
To make it a hat-trick of new deals… ???? #ncfc

Aarons told Canaries.co.uk: “I’m really happy as the Club has shown their faith in me.
“To play me at 18-years-old, some managers wouldn’t have done that, so I can only thank the boss for that.
“It’s amazing, from last season with the Under-23s and now in the Championship it has been a big step, I’ve really enjoyed it and can’t wait to carry on.”
As I wrote earlier on the other two contract extension articles, this is excellent news for both player, club and fans. Without Premier League money, we are going to have to produce our own stars of the future via the new and improved Academy.
We certainly seem to be doing that!
Top work, Mr Webber.
