New deals for Swansea City youngsters

16th August 2020

Swansea City youngsters Cameron Evans and Dan Williams have put pen to paper on new one-year contracts with the club.

The deals – which include the option for an additional 12 months – will see the pair extend their stay with the Swans having worked their way through the academy set-up.

Defender Evans, 19,  has been on the club’s books since under-nine level and served as the under-18s' vice-captain during the 2018-19 season, while he wore the armband in the under-19s' FAW Youth Cup final victory over TNS, as well as making a couple of appearances for the under-23s.

He signed his first professional contract last summer and went on to miss just a single game for the under-23s; playing 24 times in all competitions, scoring two goals.

He was also included in a senior matchday squad for the first time when he was an unused substitute in the play-off first-leg win over Brentford at the Liberty Stadium.

Williams, who has been with the Swans since the age of eight, progressed through the youth ranks before signing his first professional contract in the summer of 2019.

Having broken into the under-23s side towards the end of the previous campaign, Williams was a regular feature for the development side in 2019-20.

Despite sustaining a broken metatarsal in October, he still racked up 11 appearances in all competitions - two of which came during the run to the Premier League International Cup quarter-finals.
