Six of Norwich City’s academy youngsters have signed contract extensions.
Central midfielder Saul Milovanovic is the best known of the group having been a regular at under-23 level last season after signing from Huddersfield Town in April 2018.
The 18-year-old made 15 appearances in Premier League Two last season and has extended his deal until June 2021, with the option of a further year.
Midfielder Anis Mehmeti and forward Shae Hutchinson were both primarily U18 players last season but did get some chances at U23 level, and have both extended until next summer.
Connor Parsons was another to get U23 opportunities and the winger has also signed an extension until 2020, with the option of a further year.
U18s defender Matthew Richardson has signed until 2021, as has Joe Rose, although there is the option for a further year in the keeper's contract.
The Canaries have been giving the academy ranks a revamp this summer, with the signing of former Arsenal midfielder Charlie Gilmour becoming the sixth U23 addition when his arrival was announced on Monday, and with four U23 players already loaned out, including Republic of Ireland U21 winger Simon Power.
