Lucas Signs New Deal With Swans

Swansea City have announced that youngster Lee Lucas has penned a new three-year deal with the Club.

Lucas, 18, is now tied to the Swans until the summer of 2013.

The young midfielder has come through the Club’s Centre of Excellence and has just completed his two-year Apprenticeship.

Speaking to the Club’s official website, he said:

“It’s great to get the opportunity to be a professional at Swansea City, I’m grateful at getting the chance and I’m just going to carry on working as hard as I can in order to try and break into the squad.”

A regular in the Reserves last term Lucas did well enough to earn a call-up’s to Paulo Sousa’s first team and was named as a substitute for the fixtures against Nottingham Forest, Watford and Sheffield Wednesday.

A Wales U19 international, Lucas hopes to aid his development further by being in and around the Swans first team and admits that their current style of play suits him down to the ground.

“I’m not a very big player myself so I do prefer it played on the floor and not in the air,” he added.

“I see that as the best way to play football, it’s the way I like to play football and if I break into the team then I will get to play the way I like.”

“It was a nice experience to be involved with the first-team as it helped me mature as a player and helped improve my confidence.”
