Swansea City defender Ben Cabango has signed a new contract through to the summer of 2025.

The 20-year-old’s previous deal had been due to expire at the end of the 2022-23 season, but he has now tied his longer-term future to the Swans after another impressive season.

The Wales international has made 29 appearances in all competitions so far this term, scoring four goals.

He has made 55 appearances in total since making his debut in the Carabao Cup win over Northampton at the start of last season.

Cabango has been with the Swans since the age of 14, captaining the club at all youth levels.

He spent the first half of the 2018-19 season on loan at TNS, and became the first Swansea player to score in a Champions League fixture during his time with the Cymru Premier side.

"This is something Ben 100 per cent deserves, he has been brilliant since he joined the first-team squad," said head coach Steve Cooper.

"How he has developed and progressed as a person and a player has been a real credit to him.

"It's the right thing to reward him with the right contract, and it also shows the belief he has in us and the progress we want to make as a club.

"He has a chance to be a big part of that, he is only going to get better and there is more to come.

"The biggest compliment you can pay him is that, at 20, he is viewed as an established player in the first team. It tell you everything about the character he is.

"Congratulation to him and his family, and we cannot wait to continue our work with him."
