LONDON (Reuters) - Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has signed a four-year contract extension, the promoted Premier League side said on Wednesday.

The new deal will keep the German at the club until the end of the 2024-25 season.

Farke arrived at Carrow Road in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund and led Norwich to the top flight in 2019, before relegation in 2020 and subsequent bounce back.

"It is a pleasure to be allowed to continue to work on this level with such a special club," he told the http://www.canaries.co.uk

website.

"Now it’s about going the next step, doing everything we can to make sure this club becomes an established Premier League side."

Norwich secured promotion as winners of the second-tier Championship last season and start the campaign at home to Liverpool on Aug. 14.
