Brighton & Hove Albion under-23s defender Alex Cochrane has signed a new two-year deal with the club.
The full-back has agreed a new contract having been retained for the side’s second top-flight campaign.
Under-23s Coach Simon Rusk said, “This new deal is a reward for Alex’s consistent performances last season.
“The challenge for him now is to continue that development by working hard every day and give himself the best possible chance to keep progressing.”
Cochrane made his debut for the club back in the 2016/17 campaign, turning out 19 times for the club’s under-18 side.
He went on to make a further 20 league appearances for the team the following season, as well as coming off the bench for the under-23s in the play-off final win at Villa Park back at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.
The 19-year-old then made 17 Premier League 2 appearances last term as Albion enjoyed an impressive first year in the top division, as well as turning out for the club in the Checkatrade Trophy away to Luton Town last September.
