Liam Cullen has extended his stay with Swansea City by signing a new contract.

The two-year deal, which carries the option of a third year, will see the 18-year-old remain at the Liberty Stadium until at least June 2019.

Cullen, who hails from Tenby, netted 22 goals in all competitions last season, which included a brace for the under-23s in their 4-2 win league win over Stoke in May.

The striker featured twice for the under-23s during their pre-season tour of Northern Ireland this month and also represented Wales Under-20s at this summer’s Toulon Tournament in France.

“I am really happy to have signed a new deal with the Swans,he said.

“They are a team I have grown up supporting, so to continue my career with them is a dream.

“I worked hard last season, but I know the hard work does not stop here.

“Moving up to the under-23s presents a new challenge, but it’s one I am looking forward to.”
