The 18-year-old has already made his senior debut for the Tigers after coming off the bench against Derby County in a Carabao Cup tie earlier this season, and he was delighted to put pen to paper until 2021 with the Club holding the option of extending the deal for a further year.
“It’s pleasing because it’s something that I have been targeting since the start of the season,” said Sheaf.
“To see a reward for the hard work that you’ve been putting in is always satisfying, and I know that I have the right people around me here to continue to progress.”
Sheaf joined the Hull City Academy in 2016 having previously been on the books at Arsenal. He has been a regular in the Tigers’ U23s this season and, in addition to his appearance against the Rams in August, has been included on the first team bench a number of times in recent months.
“It’s something that I wasn’t really expecting this season, but to be around the first team environment with the players and staff has been brilliant for me,” added Sheaf.
“I’m grafting and learning every day, and I know that that has to continue now.”
