Norwich City midfielder Mario Vrancic has admitted that he would love to stay at the club past the end of the current season during an interview with Reprezentacija.ba.
The experienced playmaker’s current deal with the Canaries expires in the summer of this year, leaving questions marks in recent months over whether he will still be at Carrow Road past the end of the campaign.
A Bosnian international, Vrancic originally had offers to leave the club last summer following their relegation back to the Championship but in the end chose to stay put in order to help the Norfolk outfit fight for promotion.
Now, the 31-year-old has moved to make his stance clear on what he wants for the future of his career:
“It is too early to say anything on that topic.
“I enjoy England in every sense, it’s nice to be here and I wouldn’t mind even extending my contract, but we’ll see what happens. Now I am focused on the season and on getting back to the Premier League.”
Did these 15 former Norwich City players leave for a higher or lower fee than they arrived for?
The midfielder originally arrived at Norwich back in 2017 and has since gone on to make over 120 appearances for the Canaries, achieving one promotion along the way.
It now seems that the ball has been placed very firmly in the club’s court over the future of Vrancic as he has now stated that he would be open to staying.
Now into his early 30s, the player still has a good influence on the pitch and would surely be welcome to stay at Carrow Road past the summer.
Experience will be key for Norwich next season if they do go on to clinch promotion this term and for that reason I believe they would be wise to offer the midfielder a new contract.
He’s been a great servant to the club so far and many will be hoping that his stay is extended for a little while longer as a reward for his performances in a yellow shirt.
