Omari Hutchinson has signed his first professional contract.
The 17-year-old joined us at the age of 11 and has progressed through the academy age groups.
A winger and attacking midfielder, Omari is known for his technical ability, passing and speed.
Omari has featured regularly for our under-18s this season, providing five assists in seven league appearances - and last month he was included in the Europa League B list, a rule that enables three academy players born after 1999 to be eligible to be a part of our first team’s UEFA Europa League squad.
The young midfielder played for England at under-17 level last season and has since trained with the under-18s.
We congratulate Omari on his first professional contract and look forward to supporting him with his continued development.
