Anis is here to stay

Young star pens new deal until 2024.

30 November 2021

Anis Mehmeti has signed a new contract to remain at Adams Park until June 2024, the club is delighted to announce.

The 20-year-old arrived at the club in September 2020, linking up initially with the development squad, but being thrust into the first team within a month after catching the eye in training.

His emerging talents were rewarded with 29 appearances in the Championship in his maiden season, where he scored three times and earned a call-up to the Albania under-21 side, scoring on his debut.

Mehmeti has continued to shine this term, scoring twice at Plymouth and once at Sheffield Wednesday in the last week, before putting pen to paper on his new deal on Tuesday.

Boss Gareth Ainsworth said: “Anis is a special player with massive potential, and we’re delighted that he’ll be continuing to develop his game with us here at Wycombe Wanderers.

“When Rob, Missy and Pete Couhig backed us to launch a development squad programme just over a year ago, it was an ideal platform for us to scout players like Anis, who’d lost his way a little bit after leaving Norwich’s academy and falling into non-league, and bring them here to do everything we can to get the best out of them.

“We feel like we’re achieving that with Anis, and a great deal of credit has to go to Sam Grace, the rest of my staff, our senior players for mentoring him along the way, but also to Anis himself, for getting his head down, working hard and earning the right to launch what we believe will be a really successful career in the EFL.

“I know the fans will be excited by this news and it’s another statement of our intent to build – and keep – the strongest squad possible to achieve our aim of returning to the Championship and staying there.”

Pete Couhig, Chief Financial Officer, said: “Watching Anis develop into an integral part of our squad in just 12 months has been a perfect embodiment of everything we’re trying to achieve with the development squad. He’s a real talent who’s been so carefully and expertly coached since he walked through the door and we’re excited to see him continue to grow.

“It was great to see Anis score at Plymouth and bring out the ‘my time’ celebration, knowing that we were close to finalising a new contract for him, and that our supporters were going to be able to enjoy his performances for a long time to come.”

A full interview with Anis will follow shortly.
