Norwich City are considering a new contract agreement with Daniel Farke to warn off potential interest from the Premier League and Bundesliga, sources have told Football League World.
Farke has been at Carrow Road since 2017 and has guided Norwich through a period of reasonable success since taking charge.
His first season saw Norwich drift to mid-table, but the Canaries responded to a slow start in 2018/19 by storming to the Championship title ahead of the likes of Sheffield United and Leeds United.
That promotion to the Premier League was short-lived as Norwich suffered relegation last season.
Nevertheless, Norwich are well on course to get back to the Premier League with another promotion this season under Farke.
Yesterday’s 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday has left Norwich on 79 points, 10 clear of the chasing pack and sitting comfortably at the top of the table with 10 fixtures remaining.
Farke’s impressive record with Norwich hasn’t gone unnoticed, though, with Football League World understanding that there’s admiration for the German from the Premier League and Bundesliga.
Sources have explained to Football League World that Norwich plan to combat that by extending his contract, despite the fact that there’s a year remaining on his current terms.
The hierarchy at Carrow Road are desperate to continue building with the 44-year-old at the helm, but will have to pay him handsomely to strike an agreement.
