TEENAGER Raheem Hanley has signed an 18-month deal with Premier League outfit Swansea City after his release from Blackburn Rovers this week.

Hanley, 19, impressed as part of the Rovers side which reached the final of the 2011-12 FA Youth Cup.

The England U19s international broke into the club’s U21s side the following season.

But he never made the step up into the Rovers senior squad and on Tuesday mutually agreed to cancel his contract.
