Norwich City starlet Jamal Lewis looks set to sign a new deal at Carrow Road, fighting off Premier League interest in the youngster, according to the Eastern Daily Press.
Manager Daniel Farke is remaining calm over the prospect of Jamal Lewis signing a bumper deal, as the Canaries open up talks with the player after an impressive breakthrough 2017/18 campaign.
Premier League sides Watford and Bournemouth have both been linked with moves for the promising youngster, alongside Scottish giants Celtic. However, they look set to stave off interest and offer the highly-rated youth academy graduate an improved contract at Carrow Road.
Manager Farke told the Eastern Daily Press:
“The terms of contracts are always a topic for Stuart Webber. He is always in talks with the players and we know Jamal’s development has been brilliant in the last year,” said Farke.
“I am not too concerned because he is on a long term contract but it is a good sign of the relationship between the club and a player if there are talks.”
Jamal Lewis could be one of a few first team players rested for tonight’s Carabao Cup clash against League One side Wycombe Wanderers. Farke is keen to rest some of his first choice players for the clash, but is prioritizing making it into the Fourth Round of the cup.
“I am not a big believer in making too many changes from league to cup.
“Normally I would like to perhaps keep it to three or four. I think for Wycombe we have to be a bit more braver in making even more changes.
“Not the whole 11 but more than three.”
