Swansea City midfielder Ollie Cooper has put pen to paper on a new contract that will keep him at the club until at least the summer of 2023.

Cooper’s previous deal had been due to expire at the end of the season, but he has extended his stay by two years, with the contract also including an option for an additional year through to 2024.

The 21-year-old made his senior debut as a substitute in the FA Cup win over Stevenage, and then scored his first goal for the club in the win over Nottingham Forest in the following round.

Cooper – the son of former Wolves midfielder Kevin - first joined the Swansea City academy at under-12 level.

He was a regular fixture for the under-23s during the 2018-19 and 2019-20 campaigns, netting a memorable hat-trick in the Premier League International Cup victory over former champions Porto.

He was added to the first-team squad by Steve Cooper for the 2020-21 campaign.

He becomes the latest member of the squad to sign a new deal, following in the footsteps of Jay Fulton, Liam Cullen, Tivonge Rushesha, Steven Benda, Lewis Webb and Brandon Cooper.
