Swansea City have agreed a new three-year deal with goalkeeper Steven Benda.

The 22-year-old already had a year remaining on his existing contract, but has now committed to the Championship club until 2024.

The German, who has made one appearance this season, is out for a number of months following ankle surgery after he picked up an injury in training.

Benda is rated highly by head coach Steve Cooper and could challenge for first-team football next season.

Signed from 1860 Munich in August 2017 following a recommendation from the club's League Cup-winning keeper Gerhard Tremmel, Benda spent last season on loan at Swindon, helping them win promotion to League One.

Swansea have recalled youngster Josh Gould from his season-long loan at Cymru Premier side Barry Town United following Benda's injury, although Cooper may now target a back-up goalkeeper in the January transfer window.
