Ghana international forward Felix Afena-Gyan has extended his AS Roma contract until 2026.
The 19-year-old will remain tied to the Serie A giants for the next four seasons.
He made 17 Serie A appearances for the side managed by Jose Mourinho last season.
Gyan spoke after signing his fresh contract.
“I am really pleased to have signed this contract: every since I arrived at this club my aim was to reach the first team and since I did that my life has changed a lot,” Afena-Gyan said.
“Now I need to just concentrate on continuing to improve, I am motived to start the new season in the best possible way.”
