New deal for Garrick

14th February 2019

Swansea City forward Jordan Garrick has signed a new contract tying him to the club until the summer of 2021.

The 20-year-old - whose previous deal had been due to expire in the summer - has been a regular for the Swans' Under-23s this season, featuring on the wing and up front and performing strongly in both roles.

He joined Swansea in November 2015 from Ossett Albion, and could have chosen to pursue a career in rugby league having trained with Bradford Bulls.

But football won out for Garrick, who grew up in West Yorkshire, and he is looking to build on the potential he is showing with Swansea.

"I’ve taken my time to get into the team but, now that I am and playing well regularly, it’s nice to be rewarded for all those years of hard work," he said. 

"It wasn’t easy coming here as a new boy and fitting into the team. I’m glad that I’ve now been accepted into the squad. I get on really well with all the boys. Everything has gelled together nicely.

"I’m excited to see what the future will bring and I hope it’s with Swansea.

“Hopefully, I can break into the first team. That is everyone’s dream but I’ll take it step by step.

"I think signing for another two years is a good amount of time because things don’t have to happen straightaway and I can build myself up.

“Right now, there is nothing but positivity for me. I come into training every day and I’m happy to be here and work hard for the team. The future is very promising for me.”
