Norwich manager Alex Neil has signed a new and improved longer-term contract after a remarkable start to his career at Carrow Road.

The Scot joined the Canaries from Hamilton in January with the team in seventh place in the SkyBet Championship and guided them to promotion via the play-offs after losing just three times in 25 matches.

That success has been rewarded with a new deal and Neil admits the club’s punt on him paid off.

“Both parties were taking a chance when I was appointed but it’s worked out very well for all involved and I’m happy this has been sorted before the season gets underway,” the 34-year-old told

“I’ve really enjoyed my five months at the club, hopefully it is just the beginning as we now look forward to playing in the Barclays Premier League.”

Norwich chief executive David McNally said everyone at the club was delighted with the impact Neil has had since arriving.

“For us this summer it was the most important piece of business to ensure Alex had a much-deserved new contract,” he said.

“He galvanised the football club after arriving in January and we’re certain that Norwich City will continue to progress under his management.

“We’re delighted that the club and Alex will be working together as we continue to prepare for the start of the new Barclays Premier League season.”
