Top-flight status drives Farke

Daniel Farke is determined to try and turn Norwich City into Premier League regulars, having put pen to paper on a new four-year contract at Carrow Road.

The Canaries secured promotion back to the top-flight at the first time of asking last season and are 11/4 to survive, while they can be backed at 1/4 to make another immediate return to the Championship.

German head coach Farke took charge of City in the summer of 2017 and led them to promotion in his second season at the club, only for the Norfolk outfit to be relegated at the first time of asking.

To have this consistency and this feeling that we are an established Premier League club is the next step.

However, a resurgence in fortunes saw City excel in the Championship last season, taking the title with 97 points to earn a spot back amongst the elite of English football.

And, having done so for a second time during his tenure, Farke is eager to avoid another yo-yo in fortunes.

He told his club's official website: "To have this consistency and this feeling that we are an established Premier League club is the next step.

"I know it's unbelievably difficult because we failed a little bit in the past decades to create this consistency and it’s never easy, but I want to help this club to go the next step.

"For me that project was not done and I got the feeling there is still more I can give to the club and this is my big desire.

"We're in a much better position (now), both as a club and as a group, and we want to continue to build something unique and special."
