It's the teenager's first pro deal and ties him to the Blues until 2024.

There's nothing startlingly outstanding about him so forget about him breaking into the first team this season as his next task will be to get a regular place in our U23s midfield. From what I've seen of him, he's played in the 2 of a defensive midfield role; tall, thin, tackles robustly, positions himself well and has a good range of passes.
My memories from the Brighton game was of him being bundled off the ball by a bigger player and Brighton going on to score, then producing a sublime curving ball forward into their box with Bowler running on to it and being brought down for a penalty from which we scored.
It's good to see we've given him a 3-year contract so soon.
