Jake Kirby has committed his future to Tranmere Rovers by signing a two-year contract extension.
Kirby, 20, was already under contract for next season but he has agreed to extend his deal until 2017.
The Merseyside-born youngster made his Tranmere debut at the end of the season of 2011-12 season against Scunthorpe and he eventually broke into the first team last season as he made 35 appearances for the club.
Football Operations Director Mick Horton said: “We are determined to bring through young players at Tranmere Rovers and we feel Jake has great potential.
“The fact he is willing to commit his next three years to Tranmere is an indication that he feels this is the best place for him to develop his talent.”
