Aberdeen midfielder Dean Campbell has signed a new contract to keep him at Pittodrie until 2023.
The 18-year-old had been tied up until 2021, however Dons manager Derek McInnes has moved to secure the Aberdeen-born midfielder on a longer deal following a run of first team games this term.
Campbell, who became the Reds’ youngest ever player when he came off the bench in a Premiership match against Celtic aged 16 years and one month, has gone on to make 28 senior appearances.
Campbell is thrilled to commit his future to his hometown club, and he said: “It was not something I was expecting. But when I heard about the offer to extend my deal, I was very happy to sign to it.
“It’s Christmas come early for me. As a huge Aberdeen fan, and having been with the club for ten years now, it’s an honour and a privilege to play for the team my family and I have supported all our lives.
“With the security of a new deal behind me, I can focus on my football and I will work as hard as I can to try and secure a first team spot. My aim is to kick on and get as much game time as I possibly can between now and the end of the season.”
