Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke has signed a new four-year deal that will keep him at the club until 2025.
The German arrived at Carrow Road in 2017 after he departed from Borussia Dortmund and guided the Canaries to the Premier League in his second season.
Relegation followed in 2020, but the 44-year-old led his side to an immediate return at the first time of asking as Norwich collected 97 points on their way to the Championship title last campaign, the second time of being crowned champions under Farke.
“I’m absolutely over the moon and feel pretty emotional in such a moment. I’m unbelievably grateful for all of the trust and support,” Farke told the club’s media on Wednesday.
“It is a pleasure to be allowed to continue to work on this level with such a special club and our unbelievable owners, Delia and Michael.”
Farke’s assistant manager Eddie Riemer, head of performance Chris Domogalla and first-team coach Christopher John all signed new terms for the same period, too.

Despite losing Emiliano Buendia to Aston Villa, Norwich have enjoyed a productive transfer window so far, perhaps courtesy of Farke’s close relationship with sporting director Stuart Webber.
Farke has managed to bring in Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica, centre-back Ben Gibson and goalkeeper Angus Gunn, as well as the loan signing of Scotland international Billy Gilmour.
“I must also thank Stuart Webber for his trust and backing, my staff and players, as well as the supporters. We have a pretty special relationship in this club,” Farke added.
“Now it’s about going the next step, doing everything we can to make sure this club becomes an established Premier League side.
“We’re in a much better position, both as a club and as a group, and we want to continue to build something unique and special.”
