Kenny McLean has been handed a boost ahead of this week’s Scotland matches, signing a new three-year deal with Norwich City.

The Scottish international was part of the Norwich team that was relegated from the Premier League last season, having won the Championship a year previous. That said, McLean did catch the eye in England’s top flight.

He was linked with the likes of West Ham at one stage last season but has now committed himself to Danie Farke’s side. He signs a new three-year deal at Carrow Road, keeping him with the Canaries until the summer of 2023.

McLean joined Norwich from Aberdeen in January 2018 and spent the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign with Derek McInnes’ side. Since then, he has made 64 appearances for Norwich, scoring four times.


He could be selected for action tomorrow night as Scotland face Israel in the Nations League. Speaking prior to that on his new Norwich deal, McLean say’s delighted to get things sorted, setting his sights on a Premier League return.

“It’s great for myself and my family to be staying here for a few more years, “said McLean (Norwich City). “We’ve been speaking for quite a while, since COVID, and when we spoke about it with the club it was something that all parties wanted.

“I’ve loved it since I’ve been here. It’s been a couple of years now and it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but I’ve been very fortunate to be a part of it all. Obviously, promotion back to the Premier League is our ambition, that’s what we want. When you get the taste for it, you want more.

“That’s what everybody here wants and I’m just excited to be a part of that for the next few years.”
