Aston Villa have confirmed their striker Keinan Davis has committed his future to the Championship side by signing a new contract at the club.

The 19-year-old moved to Villa Park from non-league side Biggleswade Town in 2015. He joined Villa's youth team, before being promoted to their first team by manager Steve Bruce.

He made his Villa debut when he came off the bench in his side's FA Cup defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in January 2017. Davis' new deal will keep him at Villa until 2020.

A statement on Villa's official website read, "Aston Villa is delighted to announce that Keinan Davis has signed a new contract with the club. The 19-year-old has put pen to paper on a deal until 2020."

Villa manager provided Davis a chance to shine in the first team due to injuries to other two strikers, Jonathan Kodjia and Gabby Agbonlahor. The attacker made his full debut in his side's 4-2 win over Norwich City in August.

Davis has scored twice — in Villa's league victories over Barnsely and Burton Albion — in 13 Championship appearances this season. He has also made his way into Keith Downing's England Under-20 squad.

"It's a great feeling to have signed a new contract. 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," Davis told Villa's official website.

The Sun claims the teenager's display for the Championship side has attracted interest from Manchester United and Arsenal. It should be seen whether the contract extension will put off the two Premier League giants in their efforts to sign Davis.

Meanwhile, manager Bruce has also heaped praise on Davis' "meteoric rise" after facing rejection from Stevenage.

"There's nothing quite like when a young one comes through for you. I had it at Sunderland with Jordan Henderson, then again with Darren Carter at Birmingham," Bruce told BBC Sport.

"It was just at the right time when I threw him in. Some would say it was a calculated gamble. But he came in and, straightaway against Norwich, he lifted the whole atmosphere in the stadium. He lifted the whole spirit of a place, from a negative to a positive.

"This young kid was rejected by Stevenage, then he went to non-league and now he's the Aston Villa centre-forward. How good does that sound?

"It's been a meteoric rise. Not much more than a year ago he was playing for Biggleswade. But he's an old-fashioned centre forward, the sort Aston Villa have always been associated with. He's known rejection and he's come through. He's a quiet lad who's grasped the opportunity and he's doing everything right at the moment."
