Tom Trybull signs contract extension until 2021

  Tom Trybull signs contract extension until 2021 Norwich midfielder Tom Trybull has signed a contract extension with the club, meaning the German will stay at the club until 2021. The new three and a half year deal was signed after Trybull only signed a one year contract after joining the Canaries in the Summer from Dutch side Ado Den Haag. Trybull has been a key man for City this season. The German starts most weeks, and his work rate and passing ability have been outstanding in the centre of midfield. Speaking of the extension, the player told Canaries.co.uk that; “It was a very easy decision to sign a new contract and I’m really happy.” “I was appreciative of the chance the club gave me in the summer and I want to pay something back. I’m really thankful for the chance, and the faith Daniel Farke and Stuart Webber have shown in me.” City boss Daniel Farke added that; “It’s brilliant news as Tom has been one of our outstanding players this season. “We have a really good relationship and he feels at home here. From the first day he joined, he’s had an outstanding working attitude.

Ryan Mason has revealed he had "no option" but to retire following the head injury he sustained at Chelsea in January 2017.

Hull City midfielder Mason announced his retirement on Tuesday, having been advised that a return to competitive action would be against his best interests.

The 26-year-old fractured his skull in a clash of heads with Gary Cahill at Stamford Bridge, requiring surgery, and previously claimed that he felt "lucky to be alive" after the incident.

"I can confirm that following specialist medical advice I am having to retire from playing professional football," Mason said in a statement.

McLaren refusing to rule out Hamilton reunion

  McLaren refusing to rule out Hamilton reunion Zak Brown has hinted he would be willing to reunite Lewis Hamilton with his former team McLaren should the Briton decide to not sign a new contract with Mercedes. Hamilton enters the final year of his current contract with the Silver Arrows this year, but is expected to re-sign for the reigning world champions to continue his long-term relationship with Mercedes-Benz. The four-time world champion signed with McLaren at the age of 13, eventually earning a seat in Formula 1 for the Woking outfit in 2007 – where he raced for five years. Executive director Brown says he would be open to reacquainting Hamilton at McLaren in 2019 should the 32-year-old opt for a fresh challenge in his career. “I don’t think there’s a team in the pitlane that wouldn’t be interested in having Lewis drive for them, us included,” Brown told reporters, quoted by Reuters. “If anyone got Lewis, it would be great for the team. He has a great history here and he is very friendly with the shareholders.” Hamilton’s future in the sport has been debated, with the record pole-sitter citing a desire to go into a new career once he retires from racing, something Brown believes will be key to when he decides to hang up his helmet. ”I am going to guess that he’s contemplating how much longer he wants to go. If you’re Lewis, with what you’ve done with Mercedes and where Mercedes are headed, you’d re-sign with the team,” he added. ”He’s talked about when he stops, so that would be my guess. I can’t imagine it’s money or the quality of the team. ”He just might be going ‘let me see how this year goes, what’s the rush? They’re not going to sell the seat from underneath me’. That would be my speculation. “We might find they actually have signed and are just not telling us.

Hull midfielder Ryan Mason has been forced to retire due to a head injury suffered in January 2017. Unfortunately, having taken expert medical advice I now have no option but to retire due to the risks involved given the nature of my injury.

“Unfortunately, having taken expert medical advice, I now have no option but to retire due to the risks involved given the nature of my injury.” Mason began his career at Tottenham and had loan spells with Yeovil, Doncaster, Millwall and Swindon before joining Hull in a £12m move in 2016.

"I have worked tirelessly in order to be able to return to the pitch. Unfortunately, having taken expert medical advice I now have no option but to retire due to the risks involved given the nature of my injury.

"I am and always will be eternally grateful for the incredible network of people around me who have helped me to recover from what was a life-threatening injury in January 2017.

"Thank you to my amazing fiance, Rachel, who has been by my side and lived every single day with me since the injury, helping to give me the strength I've needed no matter how tough things got.

"We are so lucky to have now become the proud parents of our perfect baby boy George."

Mason is a product of the Tottenham youth system and won his only England cap against Italy in March 2015 before departing for Hull in the August of the following year.

"I am so proud to have come through the ranks to play for my club, the club I love," he added. "To have had the honour of captaining the team fills me with immense pride.

"Representing my country is an honour that nobody can ever take away from me and something that I am so proud to have achieved.

"I'm retiring from the game with my head held high having done everything in my power over these past 13 months to have given myself every opportunity to return to the pitch.

"I love the game, I always will and I am excited to see where football will take me next."
