Norwich goalkeeper Declan Rudd has signed a new three-year contract with the Sky Bet Championship club.
Rudd, who was on the bench for Sunday’s 1-0 defeat at Wolves, joined the Canaries’ Academy aged just eight and made his debut in September 2009.
The 23-year-old spent last season on loan with Preston and kept 20 clean sheets in 55 appearances for the League One side.
He returned to Norwich this summer and has been John Ruddy’s back-up three times in pre-season friendlies.
"To be here is what I've always wanted. I started watching Norwich when I was about six and I joined the Academy a couple of years later,” Rudd told the club’s website.
"For the club to sign me on a longer-term deal is brilliant for myself so I'm over the moon and really looking forward to the season.
"I'm just going to keep working hard, put everything into training then if I get an opportunity, take it."
