Kenji Gorre signs new Swansea City contract
6th July 2015
Young Swansea City forward Kenji Gorre has signed a new three-year contract with the club.
"I'm delighted,'' declared Gorre, who had one year to run on his existing deal. "I'm more than happy at Swansea and pleased to sign the new deal.''
Born in Amsterdam, Gorre made the move to England at the age of five. He joined the Swans in 2013 from Manchester United and made his Barclays Premier League debut at Crystal Palace as a late substitute in the final game of last season.
The first-team call came after impressive form for the club's Under-21 side where he scored 18 times and provided 10 assists.
"It was great to make my debut at Crystal Palace,'' added the 20-year-old. "It was a fantastic experience and a chance to prove that if you work hard you'll get your opportunity.''
Gorre follows in the footsteps of fellow youngsters Josh Sheehan, Lee Lucas, Henry Jones, Oliver Davies, Sam Evans, Ryan Hedges, Gregor Zabret, Connor Roberts, Alex Samuel and Alex Bray who have all signed one-year extensions to their pro contracts over the summer.
