Norwich defender Timm Klose has signed a new three-year contract which will keep him at Carrow Road until 2022.
The 31-year-old, who signed from Wolfsburg in 2016 for an undisclosed fee, made 31 Sky Bet Championship appearances for Norwich last season as they sealed the title and promotion to the Premier League.
Switzerland international Klose, who helped Norwich keep 13 clean sheets, told the club's official website: "It's fantastic the club has given me this opportunity to sign the new contract and stay for another three years.
"I know that I'm one of the oldest now and I want to be a good leader on and off the pitch to help develop the younger lads as well as win games."
Klose made 10 Premier League appearances for Norwich when they were relegated in the 2016/17 season and is relishing his return to the top-flight after three years away.
"I'm delighted we are playing in the Premier League next year and that was one of the reasons why I've chosen to stay in Norwich," he added.
"I love it here and I really feel at home. It's the first time in my career I can say that, that I feel at home somewhere else other than back in Switzerland. That was another reason why I wanted to stay."
