PARIS (AP)Teenage striker Ilyes Housni signed his first professional contract with Paris Saint-Germain on Friday, tying him to the French champion until 2026.

The 17-year-old Housni, who grew up in the southeastern Paris suburb of Creteil, came through the club’s academy and played for the Under-19 side.

He was named in PSG’s squad for the first time against Strasbourg on Wednesday, and PSG coach Christophe Galtier pledged to keep him regularly involved.

”He’s a unique player because of his physique and the runs he makes,” Galtier said.
