Bassong was voted player of the year by Norwich fans last season and has now been rewarded with a new deal.

The 27-year-old Cameroon defender arrived at Carrow Road in August 2012 from Tottenham and has made 47 appearances and scored three goals for the Canaries.

"I'm really pleased. It is something I have been looking forward to doing, as, being team captain, I think it is something really important to commit myself even more to the club," Bassong told Norwich's website.

Bassong recently returned to the starting line-up having struggled for fitness following knee surgery and has set his sights on getting back to his best.

"I had a little bad time with my fitness," he added.

"As people know, I missed pre-season and I had a knee injury and an operation, so I needed time to get back to my best and, while I wasn't playing, I was working hard on my fitness, so now I feel better and am back on track."
