The 19-year-old, a product of Jamie Vardy's V9 Academy, has helped Coventry's push for promotion this season, scoring three goals in 27 appearances.
Speaking to the Norwich website, McCallum said: "The last 24 hours have been hectic to say the least but quite overwhelming as well. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms, so it's been good.
"The club's got a good philosophy of bringing through young players like Max (Aarons) and Jamal (Lewis), as well as Ben Godfrey. It's a good philosophy. The style of play attracted me to coming here."
