Jones Signs Professional Contract

Jones Signs Professional Contract

17 year-old Chris Jones has signed his first professional contract for Swansea City after turning down the opportunity to move to the Premiership.

The striker has come through the youth ranks at the club and has appeared on the subs bench a few times this season.

He was tempted to join Manchester City but opted to stay with the club he supports and said: 'It's a dream move for me because I've been a Swans fan all my life,''

'But I never thought things would happen so quickly for me.

'(Manchester) City tried to sign me last season. If I'm honest, I was tempted and came really close to leaving - they are Premiership clubs after all.

'But when I really thought about it, I would have been leaving too much behind at Swansea.

'I know the opportunity will be there for me and I aim to repay the faith the manager and the club has shown in me.'
