Swansea youngster Daniel Alfei has been awarded a new three-year contract which keeps him at the club until 2014.

The 19-year-old defender, already a Wales Under-21 international, progressed through City's youth ranks before penning his first professional contract last summer.

The Swansea-born right-back has made a total of three appearances for the club this season and, speaking about his new deal, he told City's official website: "I'm delighted."

Alfei went on to enjoy a successful senior debut against Colchester in the FA Cup in January before making his Championship bow against Crystal Palace a week later.

He added: "It's good to know the club has the faith to offer me a three-year deal. And as far as I'm concerned, there is no better place for me to be playing my football.

"I think I've improved a lot this year by training and playing with such a quality squad.

"The gaffer (Brendan Rodgers) has helped me develop. He is always talking to me and telling me where I am and where I need to be.

"His coaching methods have also brought my game on a great deal."
