Jonny Howson will face Norwich City in the Championship again next season after signing a new deal with Middlesbrough. 

The 34-year-old has signed a new one-year deal to remain on Teesside next season after being voted as the club's player of the season. 

Howson joined Boro from Norwich back in 2017 and has been a crucial player for Garry Monk, Tony Pulis, Jonathan Woodgate, Neil Warnock and Chris Wilder. 

The north east club hold lofty ambitions this season and hope the experienced Howson can play a major role in their plans. 

Making 49 appearances in all competitions for Boro last season, Wilder was delighted to agree a new deal with the midfielder. 

“We’re delighted we’ve managed to come to an agreement with Jonny,” Wilder told the club website.

"He was coming out of contract and it’s a key signing for us.”
