Middlesbrough teenager Callum Cooke has signed a three-year professional contract with the club.

The 17-year-old forward has just returned from Malta where he starred for the England Under-17s during their European Championship final win against Holland.

"These are exciting times for me and I'm delighted to have secured my future here at Boro," Cooke told the club's official website.

"I've been with the Academy since I was eight and it means a lot to get this contract."
