Young Swansea City striker Ruben Davies has signed a new contract through to the summer of 2024.

Davies has been a regular for the club's under-21 side in recent months, and he has put pen to paper on a new deal, which his previous contract having been due to expire in the summer of 2023.

Davies signed a two-year scholarship with Swansea City in the summer of 2020, joining from Cardiff and Vale School Boys having previously spent his youth years at Cowbridge Town in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The Welsh forward endured over a year on the sidelines due to a back injury, and had to deal with niggling problems on his return to fitness.

But he has responded with a fine run of form. Davies has racked up nine goals this season, including an impressive four-goal haul against Ipswich Town in March. 

"Myself and all of the coaching staff are extremely proud of Ruben, and with the injuries he has had over the past two years, it's amazing." said under-21s' coach Anthony Wright. 

"He's been very good this year, and the important thing for us was making sure we get him on the grass this season, and the performance team have done incredibly well.

"He's not had enough momentum over the last couple of years due to injury, but he has grown a lot in a short space of time.

"I'd say he's been on the grass more this season than he has in the last three years, which has had effects on his body here and there, but he's pulled through that. 

"We're starting to see the quality that he undoubtedly has.

"He's not starting every game, and that's not down to performance, we just need to look after him, and look what he does when he comes on.

"It's a building process with Ruben at the moment, but he puts his head down and works hard. We're really pleased for him."
