Midfielder Downes, who burst onto the scene in the summer of 2017 and has made 37 appearances for the Blues, was due to be out of contract next summer but the club have moved to extend his deal.

There is also an option to extend Downes’ contract for a further season.

“I’m pleased for Flynn. He’s another young player who has done great for us,” Town boss Paul Lambert told the club website.

“I’ve got a lot of time for him. He’s a good footballer; he’s got a great work ethic. Physically wise, he’s strong and getting stronger.

“He’s only 20 and he will make mistakes. That’s part of it but he’s got a great chance of having a really good career in the game.”

The Blues have made a real effort to secure the futures of their best young players of late, with Downes following Teddy Bishop, Myles Kenlock, Luke Woolfenden, Jack Lankester, Corrie Ndaba and Idris El Mizouni who have all had their contracts extended recently.
