Adam King signs new Swansea City contract
8th July 2016
Adam King has signed a new three-year contract which will keep him at Swansea City until the summer of 2019.
The midfield starlet's previous deal had been due to expire at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
But King's progress since he joined the Swans from Heart of Midlothian in January 2014 has seen him rewarded with an extended agreement.
"I am delighted the club have shown faith in me again by offering me another deal," King said.
"It's a big thing for me. To kick on again in the next few years is going to be difficult, but I believe I can do it.
"Last season was a good one for me. I was out on loan and then after coming back I had a bit of experience training with the first team and getting to work with the new manager.
"Hopefully I can spend some more time with the first team next season and I'll see where that takes me."
Still only 20, King arrived at the Swans as an 18-year-old having played three senior games for Hearts.
He has managed one first-team appearance to date, in the FA Cup victory at Tranmere in January 2015, but has impressed in his performances for the club's development squad.
King also thrived during a loan spell at Crewe Alexandra last season, where he scored five goals in 26 appearances.
And the Scotland Under-21 international reckons he has taken big strides forward since leaving his homeland for the Swans.
"It has been absolutely brilliant from the minute I walked through the door, at the football club and the city in general," King added.
"It's the perfect place for me and my style of play. I feel I have improved as a player and as a person as well."
