He will now be signed up until 2024, with an option for an extra year included. It’s a great way to celebrate his recent success with the England U19 squad, where he won the European Championships.

We don’t have any exclusive information about whether the centre back will go on loan this summer, but the timing feels right to us. He’s the right age, he’s got plenty of ability, and is surely almost ready for a League One or Championship spell.
On the other hand, given the struggles the Development Squad had last season, keeping him going another year in the youth sides will have its advantages too.
Either way, we’ve always been excited about the 19 year old’s potential, and this latest deal confirms that the club feel the same way.
