Brandon Cooper pens Swansea City contract extension
Swansea City defender Brandon Cooper has signed a new contract to extend his time with the club.
The 21-year-old defender has agreed terms through to the summer of 2024, with the option for a further 12 months.
His previous deal had been due to initially run until the summer of 2023.
Cooper, who has been with the Swans since the age of six, has enjoyed a breakthrough season at first-team level, making seven appearances so far and winning praise from head coach Russell Martin.
The centre-half made his first-team debut in the Carabao Cup defeat to Crystal Palace in 2018 and made 12 appearances in Premier League 2 during the 2019-20 season, while also featuring in the FA Cup defeat at QPR in January 2020.
Cooper then enjoyed further experience of senior football during a brief loan spell at Yeovil Town, making three appearances before the National League season came to a premature end.
He made a big impression on loan at Newport County during the first half of last term, playing 25 times in all competitions and scoring his first senior goal.
Cooper was also named the EFL's Young Player of the Month for October while, back in SA1, he featured in the penultimate league game of the 2020-21 season as a late substitute in the Swans' 2-1 win over Derby.
He has been a regular for Wales at age-grade level, currently skippering the under-21 side, while he has also received call-ups to the senior squad.
