Presenting the inside scoop on the latest Football League news

Norwich star signs on for two more years

Norwich fan-favourite, Wes Hoolahan, has signed a contract that sees him tied to the Norfolk side for another two years.

Hoolahan first signed for the Canaries in 2008 and after playing for the Norfolk side for eight years he has become the Club’s longest-serving player.

The Irishman made the move to Carrow Road in 2008 following spells at Irish sides Shelbourne and Livingston before signing for, then League One side, Blackpool.

A successful season on loan at Bloomfield impressed Simon Grayson enough to earn himself a deal with the Tangerines.

After making 45 appearances, scoring two times, the attacking midfielder made the switch to East Anglia to sign for Norwich City.

Since making the move to Norwich, Hoolahan has become a fan-favourite, being highly instrumental in the three successive promotions that saw the Canaries rise up from League One to the Premier League between 2009 and 2012.

Hoolahan also appeared in for his country in this summer’s Euro 2016 in France, netting Ireland’s first goal in the competition.

Norwich boss Alex Neil demonstrated the effect that Hoolahan has on Norwich: “Wes has always been a special player for us.” he said. “More often than not, he’s the one I turn to when I need someone to deliver something for me, and he never really lets me down.

He’s a quality player. We all know his qualities. He’ll be key for us this year.”
