“The 17-year-old first joined us as a Scholar from Ipswich in July 2019. Known for his agility, pace and creativity, Marcelo is a versatile attacking player.
A Mexican Youth international, Marcelo already featured in our U18 Premier League side last season, as well as two appearances in the FA Youth Cup.
He has since played consistently for our U18s, and last weekend scored twice in our 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.
“We congratulate Marcelo on his first pro contract and look forward to supporting him with his continued development.”
