Norwich City manager Paul Lambert has signed a new improved contract with the Canaries.

Norwich won 29 of their 43 league games played after former Champions League winner Lambert took over the reins, a win ratio of 67.4 per cent.

He has now underlined his commitment to Norwich City by signing a new deal, with work already well underway to prepare for the return of Championship football to Carrow Road next season.

Norwich City chairman Alan Bowkett said he was delighted to confirm that Lambert, assistant manager Ian Culverhouse and head of football operations Gary Karsa have all put pen to paper on new and improved contracts.

Bowkett told the club's official website: "Paul has done a fantastic job for us since joining in August and has played his full part in restoring some pride to Norwich City Football Club.

"There's been a lot of speculation linking him to other clubs and that's understandable as he is an excellent young manager with a competent and motivated coaching team backing him up.

"We're delighted he has signed a new deal and demonstrated his commitment to carrying on the job he has made such a fine start to here at Norwich.

"Paul shares the board's ambition and progressive ideals as we work hard together towards our ultimate goal of getting Norwich City back into the Premier League."

Meanwhile Bowkett revealed chief executive David McNally has also signed a new and improved contract as a strong and united Norwich City Football Club looks forward to the future.

He commented: "I'm delighted to confirm that David McNally has signed a new contract. David has worked tirelessly with the rest of the board and the staff at the club to help turn an alarming slide in our fortunes on and off the pitch into a situation where we have positive momentum again.

"We're all looking forward to continuing to serve our unrivalled supporters and working together to meet the significant challenges that still lie ahead for this football club."
