The 32-year old veteran has had a change of heart after last years relegation to the Championship, in that he had submitted a January request to quit the club,  but that had been rejected by then-boss Chris Hughton

“Obviously last year was a bad season for me, but I came back in for pre-season and the manager spoke to me and talked me through his plans,” Hoolahan told the Official site.

“Now I just can’t wait to get started and I’m delighted to be here for another couple of seasons.”

Last campaign it was seemed that the Republic of Ireland international was frozen out of Hughton’s side last and was knocked even more down the line by his own attempts for a move to Aston Villa in January.

Hoolahan played just 19 times last season as the Canaries were relegated from the Premier League, but he has made 213 appearances since joining from Blackpool in 2008.

“I’m absolutely delighted Wes has agreed to sign a new deal,” Adams told the Official site.

“He’s a fantastic player who can make a big impact for us this season and he will be an integral part of our squad.”

Hoolahan is happy and settled with his family in the East Anglia area – he intends to retire at the club and is more than happy to pen two more years at Carrow Road.
