Barnsley Football Club is delighted to announce young midfielder Paul Digby has today penned an extension to his current contract at Oakwell, meaning he will remain a Reds player until at least the summer of 2017.
The 18-year-old has showed incredible promise and potential during his early days at Oakwell so far, and the club are delighted to have agreed a new deal with the up-and-coming-midfielder.
“I’m obviously delighted and glad to be here for the next four years,” said Digby. “Hopefully we can progress as a club.
“Last week, I sat down with my agent and he said that the club wanted to keep me here for the next four years. We discussed various things and obviously I was thrilled.
“I just want to get back in the team and continue playing football.
“It’s such a big deal for a young player,”
“To know I’m wanted as part of the club’s future plans gives me a massive boost.”
Digby made his debut as a 16-year-old in 2011 as a 33rd minute substitute at Derby County, but has just returned from a troublesome injury this summer with some impressive displays in pre-season.
The youngster added, “The gaffer has always been telling me I’ll come back stronger, I’ll come back mentally stronger, I’ll grow and develop.”
