Norwich City have taken up the one year option on Todd Cantwell’s contract but there’s still no sign of a new deal for the Norfolk born midfielder.

That will no doubt be a question for another day as today, the Canaries have issued their retained list.

Players being released:

Ivo Pinto
Matt Jarvis
Yanic Wildschut
Steven Naismith
Pierre Fonkeu (U23)
Tristan Abrahams (U23)
Louis McIntosh (U23)
Bilal Kamal (U23)
Spencer Keller (U18)
Finlay Barnes (U18)
Ryan Dickerson (U18)
Aaron Ekumah (U18)

Players leaving after the end of their loan deals:

Felix Passlack
Jordan Rhodes

Players who have had one-year options exercised:

Todd Cantwell
Timi Odusina (U23)

Players who have been offered professional deals:

Shae Hutchinson (U18)
Connor Parsons (U18)
Anis Mehmeti (U18)

The four big earners there were Ivo Pinto, Steven Naismith, Yanic Wildschut and Matt Jarvis, with Pinto being the only player to have played a meaningful part in first team affairs.

The news that Wigan and Everton are due £1m+ promotion payments for Wildschut and Naismith respectively does stick in the throat somewhat.

The Cantwell contract situation does concern me as well and there is clearly a big sticking point somewhere. We don’t know what and where that issue is but hopefully Todd can continue as a Norwich City player.
