Samy Chouchane's new deal runs until June 2025.

Samy Chouchane has agreed a new contract with the club until June 2025. 

The Albion under-21 midfielder was named in the squad for the final two Europa League group matches against AEK Athens and Marseille.  

Men’s under-21s head coach Shannon Ruth said, “Samy has continued to grow and we are pleased with his development since he joined the club, it’s also been great to see him get an opportunity with the first team more recently.

“This contract is a reward for Samy’s progress and now it’s important that he uses these experiences as motivation to push on and have a strong second half of the season.”

Technical director David Weir said, “Samy has worked his way up through our age group teams and recently been involved with the first-team group. 

“That’s testament to his attitude, hard work and development in the three years he has been with us, and this new contract is a reward for that.”

Samy joined us from AC Boulogne-Billancourt in July 2020, initially to be a part of our under-18s; he won silverware in his first season, winning the Under-17s Premier League Cup and established himself as a regular in the under-21s last season. 

Paris-born Samy plays international football for Tunisia. He was called up to the national squad in September; he also represented them at the Under-20 World Cup 2023, and won ten caps at that level.
