Bristol City young talent Ayman Benarous has agreed a new two-and-a-half-year deal at Ashton Gate, according to The Bristol Post.
There has been some unrest among City fans in recent weeks after a frustrating transfer window and with injuries building up.
However, some good news emerged last night as The Bristol Post reported that Benarous is set to pen a new contract with the Bs3 club.
It is understood that the 17-year-old will sign a two-and-a-half-year deal, which will keen him with the Robins until the summer of 2023.
The teenage attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing centrally or out wide, is highly thought of at City and was earmarked as one to watch by former manager Lee Johnson last year.
His quality has been recognised on the international stage as well, as he’s featured a number of times for the England U17s.
Under Dean Holden, there is a clear path between City’s academy and the senior side – with the likes of Zak Vyner, Antoine Semenyo, Owura Edwards, and Opi Edwards all featuring this term.
Benarous is yet to feature for the Robins first team but has been part of the U23s side in the 2020/21 campaign.
Diedhiou? Martin? – Can you name which Bristol City player scored each these 15 goals this season?
There has been some unrest at City recently – much of it warranted – but this is certainly good news for the Bs3 club.
Benarous is highly-rated at the club and seems as though he could be one of the next academy players that has a significant impact for the Robins senior side.
They may not see the benefit of it this year with the 17-year-old but the Robins youth system continues to prove vital.
