Swansea City striker Oli McBurnie has signed a new deal at the Sky Bet Championship club, putting an end to speculation linking him with a move to Leeds United.

McBurnie has signed a three-year deal with the option for a fourth year, committing his future to the side who were relegated from the Premier League last season.

The 22-year-old striker spent the end of last season on loan in the Sky Bet Championship, and although he was unable to keep Barnsley in the second tier, his goals showed that he was capable of scoring goals at this level.

This is what had attracted the attention of Leeds United, but any chances of the Yorkshire club signing McBurnie appear to have been put to bed now.

Speaking to the club’s official website about the signing of his new contract, McBurnie seemed absolutely thrilled.

He said: “I am delighted to sign the new contract. It’s been a long time coming, but after coming back and seeing the plans for this season, and speaking to the gaffer and everyone involved, I think it’s the perfect thing for me to do at this time in my career. I’m buzzing to get it sorted.”

“It’s a time in my career where I need to be settled and find a home. I need to be with my family and concentrating on my football. The club have shown faith in me with this contract and I have shown faith in the club. Hopefully it can be mutually beneficial and we can work well together.”
