Norwich City striker Chris Martin has committed his future to the club by signing a contract to stay at Carrow Road until 2013.
The 21-year-old, a product of the club's Academy, has netted 16 goals so far this season and has been part of a lethal attacking trio along with Grant Holt and Wes Hoolahan, who have scored 52 times between them.
His deal was due to expire at the end of the season and he had been chased by clubs in the Championship, but Martin has opted to sign a three-and-a-half year deal with the promotion chasing Canaries.
Manager Paul Lambert told the club's official website: "Chris has been brilliant for us so far this season. He has been playing on top of his game and he deserves this new contract.
"It's great for the club to have players who have come through the Academy.
"He's still only 21 and is a terrific finisher with both feet, as he showed against Colchester last weekend."
Martin added: "I'm delighted to sign a new deal. This season has been very good for me and everybody connected with the club so far and hopefully we can carry that on."
