Sebastien Bassong: Norwich captain has signed new contract

The Canaries captain's new two-and-a-half-year contract will keep him with the Carrow Road club until June 2016.

The 27-year-old is currently enjoying his second season with Norwich and has made 47 appearances for the Premier League club so far.

Bassong told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased, it is something I have been looking forward to doing.

"I think it is something really important to commit myself even more to the club.

"I had a little bad time with my fitness, as people know I missed pre-season and I had a knee injury and an operation.

"So I needed time to get back to my best and while I wasn't playing I was working hard on my fitness, so now I feel better and am back on track."

Manager Chris Hughton added: "We're delighted that we've had the opportunity to extend Seb's contract - somebody who has been an integral part of everything we've done so far and of course our player of the season last year."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
