Swansea City defender Harry Jones signs new contract
Swansea City defender Harry Jones has signed a new contract to extend his stay with the club through to the summer of 2025.
The teenager’s previous deal had been due to expire at the end of the 2022-23 season.
Jones, 19, has been in fine form for the under-21s this term, featuring at wing-back and centre-back, while he can also play on the right side of midfield.
He first joined the Swans in the summer of 2020 after a spell at Arsenal, having been with the Gunners since the age of seven.
The Cambridgeshire-born defender wasted little time making an impression in SA1, and he was rewarded with a first professional contract in December 2020.
The Wales age-grade international spent the second half of last season on loan at Barry Town United in the Cymru Premier.
“Harry is a smashing lad, he is quite a quiet member of the group but he goes about his business every day with a real focus,” said Jon Grey, Swansea City's senior professional development phase coach.
“He always gives 100 per cent, he is aggressive and a determined lad on the pitch.
“He is also really good on the ball, and I think his experience of playing as a full-back has certainly helped him in that adjustment to playing centre-back.
“We are delighted to have been able to sign him to a new contract to keep him here.
“He has had that bit of experience of going out on loan and playing men’s football, which has certainly helped him.
“Now it’s about sitting down and planning what the next move and the next stage in his development is.”
