Jacob Sorensen is set to stay at Norwich City beyond the summer as the club prepares to announce their retained and released list. 

The Danish midfielder, who was due to be out of contract next month, is understood to have agreed a deal to remain at Carrow Road and will form part of the Canaries' squad next season. 

Sorensen, who turned 26 in March, has been a useful utility player for the Canaries since joining from Danish side Esbjerg in 2020 and made his desire to remain in Norfolk clear earlier in the year. 

He made 13 appearances for City in their push to the Championship play-offs this season, operating as a central midfielder, defender and has previously been used as a left back during an injury crisis in their last title-winning campaign. 

Sorensen did have an option to extend his stay by a further year, and a fresh agreement has been stuck that will keep him at Norwich beyond his current contract. 

Speaking in January, Sorensen said, "I would be lying if I said it's not in my head with the contract. It's up in the summer, and you're running out of time.

"I've had a great time at Norwich. It's been three and a half years now with ups and downs for me personally with the injuries and stuff. I haven't spoken to the club yet.

"My main aim was to get back fully fit, now I've played 90 minutes and now I hope I can continue to stay fit. I will probably speak with the club in a few months and we will see where we are."

It's also understood that young goalkeeper Archie Mair has agreed a new contract, having impressed out on loan at National League side Gateshead in the first half of the campaign and at League Two side Morecombe after January. 

Ben Gibson, Dimi Giannoulis and Sam McCallum are all set to depart the club at the end of their respective contracts. 

Giannoulis is understood to have options in Italy, while Stoke has been touted as a possible destination for McCallum. Danny Batth will also depart, with loan duo Sydney van Hooijdonk and Pedro Lima returning to their parent clubs.

Norwich will officially confirm their released and retained list in the coming days as they step up their preparations for the new campaign.

Despite reports over the weekend, Norwich are not close to an appointment for David Wagner's successor and an appointment is unlikely to happen in the next week. 

Discussions with candidates are expected to ramp up in due course, with Ben Knapper leading the process. Wagner was set to be dismissed irrespective of how the Championship campaign ended.
