The 18-year-old - who can play right-back or right-midfield - has been part of Town's academy since the age of 12.

Capped by England from U15 to U18 level, he has been linked to a number of big clubs in recent months, including Manchester United, Arsenal, Celtic, Brighton and Huddersfield, as well as Benfica, RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach.

A move abroad would have left the Blues receiving nothing in compensation.

Injuries hampered his progress last season as he played sporadically for the club's successful U23 and U18 sides.

He went away at the end of that campaign facing an uncertain future given his two-year scholarship had expired. However, he has now signed until 2022, with Town also holding the option to extend that deal by a further year.
