The Ospreys have confirmed that back-rower Morgan Allen has committed his future to the club until at least May 2015.
The 23-year-old has spent the past three seasons at the Liberty Stadium, having previously played for Pontypool.
Allen has gone on to make 21 appearances for the region, scoring six tries.
Allen said: "It's very good news for me personally. I couldn't be anywhere better in terms of my development as a player to be honest.
"The last year or so has been brilliant for me, it really has, I think I've developed as a player and as a person.
"There's a lot of good boys here, there are some world-class players for me to learn from, who have been helping bring through boys like me, always willing to work with us and help us out.
"I'm enjoying my rugby and things have been going really well. With the new contract, I'm looking forward to next season and hopefully kicking on from where I am now. Hopefully I'll get to wear the shirt even more next time around."
