Swansea City striker Josh Thomas has put pen to paper on an 18-month contract extension that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2024.

The 19-year-old had been on a short-term deal through to the end of December 2022, having recently returned from the best part of 18 months on the sidelines due to an ankle injury.

His new deal includes the option for a further extension through to the end of June 2025.

But he has made an impressive return to action, scoring four goals in five outings for the under-21s this term.

He has also been included in the first-team matchday squads for games against Oxford, Luton and Middlesbrough.

Thomas has been with the Swans since he was 12 years old, and he signed a scholarship in the summer of 2019.

A fine start to the 2020-21 season - including a hat-trick in the under-23s' victory over Nottingham Forest - saw Thomas sign his first professional contract with the club before injury sidelined him.
