Norwich trigger contract extension for Bournemouth loanee Todd Cantwell
Norwich City have triggered the option to extend Todd Cantwell’s contract, although Bournemouth have the option of making the move permanent at the end of the season.
Cantwell’s existing deal was due to expire this summer, but the club exercised the option for a further 12 months, largely to protect his market value.
The academy graduate has spent the second half of the current campaign on loan at Bournemouth, having signed in January. He has made 11 appearances so far but has recently found game time hard to come by, starting just one of the previous six games.
