Blackburn Rovers youngster Alan Judge has committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new contract.
The 20-year-old Irishman has penned a new two-and-a-half-year deal that ties him to the Lancashire outfit until the summer of 2011.
Judge is pleased to have already featured under new manager Sam Allardyce and believes he has a bright future at Ewood Park.
"I'm very pleased to have been offered a new contract," he told the club's official website.
"The new manager has already given me a go against Blyth and put me on the bench against Stoke in the Premier League, so it's working well so far.
"I'm very happy here and hopefully I can push on now and get a few more games under my belt."
