Barnsley have agreed a new deal for midfielder Jacob Butterfield to keep the teenager at Oakwell for two more years.
The Bradford-born youngster made his way through the academy ranks at the South Yorkshire club before signing professional terms in 2006.
He made his Tykes debut as a substitute in September 2007 when he came on in a 2-0 League Cup defeat to Newcastle at St James' Park.
Butterfield has made 22 appearances this campaign and scored his first goal for the club in the opening day fixture against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.
Now manager Mark Robins has moved to keep hold of the 19-year-old for a further two years after impressing during their Championship campaign.
Butterfield told the club's official website: "I am obviously delighted to have signed a new two-year contract here. I am very settled at this football club and enjoying my time here.
"Getting another two years will help me push on and improve as a player working with the manager and his staff."
