Norwich City announced on Friday morning they had extended the contracts of Wes Hoolahan, Alex Tettey and Michael Turner until 2017, at the same time as releasing nine other players.
Gary O’Neil confirmed on Thursday he had rejected a new contract offer to sign a two-year deal with Championship rivals Bristol City but some of the club’s younger talent will also leave when their current contracts expire later this month.
Jamar Loza and Cameron King are among the notable departures, after both had brief first team appearances, but the list also includes Reiss Awuah, Afolabi Coker, Adel Gafaiti, Reece Hall-Johnson, Cameron Norman and Arinse Uade.
Loza scored once in six senior appearances for the Canaries - firing in a memorable 98th minute equaliser at Huddersfield in the Championship back in March 2015 - but has since been limited to a series of loan spells in the Football League at the likes of Leyton Orient, Southend, Yeovil and Stevenage. Midfielder King made one League Cup appearance under Neil Adams at Shrewsbury in September 2014 but his progress afterwards has been hampered by injury.
Turner, returns to his parent club after a loan stint at defeated Championship play-off finalists Sheffield Wednesday. Turner scored once in 12 appearances for the Owls. The 32-year-old’s last senior Norwich City outing came in a 4-0 win against Blackpool in February 2015.
The club have also confirmed they have decided to trigger one-year options for younger duo Ben Killip and Jamie Eaton-Collins.
