Matthew Blake signs new Swansea Cty contract

28th June 2019

Swansea City under-23s' defender Matthew Blake has signed a new two-year deal that will see him stay with the club until June 2021.

The Ynystawe-born 19-year-old, who signed his first professional deal with the Swans last summer, featured 13 times for the development side in all competitions during the 2018-19 campaign.

The left-back scored once and provided three assists last term, scoring a spectacular free-kick in March against Arsenal during a 2-2 draw in Premier League 2 at Meadow Park.

But a quad injury limited the youngster to just one further start in the semi-final of the Premier League Cup in May.
