Men’s under-21s defender Casper Nilsson has signed a new contract that runs until June 2025.

The Sweden under-19 international joined us from Malmo in summer 2020, making the step up to under-21s from our under-18s at the beginning of this season.

“This contract reflects his positive development and mentality – I am pleased that he has decided to commit his future to the club.”
