Walsall's teenage midfielder Liam Kinsella has agreed a new two-year contract with the League One club.
The 19-year-old son of former Saddlers midfielder Mark Kinsella, signed his first professional deal last summer.
He made his league debut in August, going to make four further early-season first-team appearances at right-back.
"He was given a taste of first-team action and did extremely well. He has energy and enthusiasm is abundance," said Saddlers manager Dean Smith.
"Even though he was playing in his less favoured position of right-back rather than midfield, he let no-one down and even put in some man-of-the-match performances.
"Liam is an exceptional talent. Like Rico Henry, I can see him really pushing on and becoming some player."
