Ashley Richards has committed his future to Swansea by penning a two-year deal.

The 19-year-old, who impressed while filling in at right-back last season, has made 15 appearances for the Swans.

"We have agreed a deal with Jazz and his agent," chairman Huw Jenkins told the club's official website.

"As a club we are delighted to secure such an exciting new talent.

"He has come through the ranks with us and I am sure he has a bright future ahead of him with Swansea."
