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.
