Cardiff striker Mark Harris has signed a new deal that runs until the summer of 2023 following a breakout campaign with the Bluebirds this season.

The former Wales Under-21 international has made 17 appearances for Cardiff this season, scoring his first senior goal for the club in November’s 4-0 win over Luton while he has also notched against Preston and Birmingham.

“I’m delighted to have agreed this deal with the club I’ve been at since the age of seven,” Harris said.

“I’ve enjoyed a very good season, but I’m not resting on it though. I want to play as much as possible and push on now.”

The 22-year-old, who has had loan spells with Newport, Port Vale and Wrexham in recent years, impressed Cardiff boss Mick McCarthy in their final Championship game of the season after coming on for Kieffer Moore at half-time.

“We’ve been discussing this for a while,” McCarthy added on the club website. “At Birmingham when he came on, he scored a really good goal and the one that really tipped it for me was his last game against Rotherham.

“He replaced Kieffer and did a really great job on his own up front. Mark deserves his new contract and I’m delighted he’s signed.”
