Academy midfielder Nya Kirby has committed himself to Crystal Palace by signing a new four-year contract.

The 18-year-old, who is a regular in Palace's U23 side, played the full game against FC Helsingor on the club's Scandinavian tour and is highly rated by the Eagles.

An England U19 international, the former Tottenham player was a key member of England's U17 World Cup-winning squad last year and has his sights on a first-team spot after penning this deal.

"It's amazing, an amazing achievement for me," he told Palace TV. "I'm always willing to work hard for the gaffer and I'm excited to get started. Playing and being around all the players 24/7 is a great experience and it makes me a better athlete.

"[Seeing Aaron Wan-Bissaka make the first team] It just shows that it's literally just graft your way and as long as you keep working hard, as Aaron has done. Hopefully I can fulfil what he has done. Me and him have a good relationship and always talk.

"I'd like to keep on training and working hard and hopefully make an appearance towards the end of the season."
