Former Chester FC loanee Oli McBurnie has penned a new deal with Premier League side Swansea City.
McBurnie, 20, has signed a one-year extension to his current deal at the Liberty Stadium having impressed for the Swans' under-23 side since arriving in June 2015 and putting himself in the picture for the first team.
The striker netted two goals on his first-team debut during the Swans’ 3-1 EFL Cup win over Peterborough United in August which came days before making his Premier League debut against champions Leicester City.
"I am really excited and thankful to the club for giving me the opportunity," said McBurnie, who netted for Swansea's U23 side in a 2-0 win over Plymouth Argyle in the Checkatrade Trophy last night.
"A new contract shows faith in me and from here I just want to crack on and keep working hard to get more opportunities on the pitch with the first-team.“If the next 16 months goes as well as the first has, I will be happy.
"Going on loan last year only continued to help me develop. I feel I have had a good start to this season but I want to keep building on it. I still have plenty to deliver and the more chances I get, the more I will be able to prove myself."
McBurnie made 14 National League appearances for Chester during the 2014/15 season, scoring five times, after joining on loan from League One side Bradford City and proved a hit with the Blues faithful.
Following his spell with Chester, McBurnie told the Chronicle: "Chester was a brilliant move for me and I can’t believe how much it improved me as a player."
"I’d say that I learnt more in my time at Chester than at any other time in my career."
