Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis has put pen to paper on a contract extension
The 19-year-old striker has signed a new two-and-a-half year deal to commit himself to the Villans until 2020.
Davis has established himself as a regular in Steve Bruce's squad this term, scoring twice in the Championship.
A host of Premier League clubs including Manchester United and Arsenal have been linked with a move for his signature.
“It’s a great feeling to have signed a new contract,” Davis said.
“This is another milestone for me this season – I had my first start and my full league debut then an international call-up and this is another one.
“The hard work continues, now. I’ve got to keep working and reach that next milestone.”
Steve Bruce thinks Davis can reach the top of the game.
The Villa boss said: “He’s got a big future the kid, we think.
“He’s got to improve a little bit on his finishing and he’s still got a long way to go.”
Villa skipper John Terry has also spoken about Davis in glowing terms.
The former Chelsea defender said: “He’s a nightmare to play against in training. He really is.”
