Evan Ferguson joined Albion in January 2021.

We’re delighted to announce that striker Evan Ferguson has committed his long-term future to the club by signing a contract that runs until 2028.

The 18-year-old has enjoyed a breakthrough season, scoring nine goals in all competitions including four in the Premier League. He also scored his first goal for the Republic of Ireland last month in a friendly against Latvia.

Head coach Roberto De Zerbi said, “Evan’s contract extension is great news. He trains and plays like a senior player with many years of experience and has become an important member of the squad.

“The aim is to help him become one of the strongest strikers in Europe.”

Evan joined Albion from Irish club Bohemians in January 2021 and quickly established himself at academy and under-21 level before becoming our fifth youngest senior debutant later that year against Cardiff City in the Carabao Cup.

He scored his first Premier League goal against Arsenal in December.
