Young Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Andrew Fisher has signed a new deal with the club according to the Lancashire Telegraph.

The 19-year-old stopper has come through the academy system at Ewood Park and the youngster is being tipped to enjoy a successful career in the game.

It has been reported that Fisher has signed a contract extension with Rovers with the player now tied down to the club until summer 2019. The young keeper only signed his first professional deal with the club in January 2016 and after impressing the coaching staff, the Lancashire club have moved swiftly to hand Fisher a longer deal.

The player is yet to feature for Blackburn Rovers at first team level although Fisher has represented the club’s under-23 side in this season’s Checkatrade Trophy. The keeper has been a regular for Damien Johnson’s young side so far this term with Fisher’s last appearance at under-23 level coming in a 2-0 victory over Stoke City last month.

Fisher has been sharing goalkeeping duties in the under-23s with Charlie Albinson this season and the player has generally done very well in the side.

With the youngster now having the benefit of an extra year at Ewood Park, his main aim will be to push for his first senior start.
