Swansea City have confirmed the signing of Courtney Baker-Richardson from non-league side Leamington FC.
The former Coventry City academy product will link up with the club's U23 side on a two-year contract after impressing in the National League North last season, where he scored 21 goals.
The 21-year-old started his career with the Sky Blues but only made two first-team appearances before moving on. He also had spells with Tamworth, Nuneaton and Redditch.
“It still has not sunk in,” said Baker-Richardson.
“The welcome I have had has been superb and I feel this is a move that can benefit my career and help me push me on. I am very excited to get started.
“I have had to take a few knock backs in my career, but whenever people tell me I am not good enough, it only motivates me to prove them wrong.
"I had a good 18 months at Leamington and I feel I can deliver at this level.
“I watched the game on Friday (against Liverpool U23s) and thought we were unfortunate to lose 2-0.
“I am looking forward to getting started.”
