The 20-year-old, a product of the Oakwell academy, will remain with the Reds until the summer of 2016.

"Danny is one of a number of younger players the club feel have very good potential," manager Danny Wilson told the club's official website.

"The games I've watched him in over recent weeks, he's been very impressive.

"From my point of view, there's nothing better than seeing one of your own coming through and it's testament to everybody in the academy for their hard work, so let's hope there's more to come."

Rose, who made his first-team debut as a 17-year-old in 2011, has made a total of 15 appearances, mainly off the substitutes' bench and has scored two goals.

Rose said: "I'm pleased and proud to extend my stay at the club I love.

"I'm determined to get a shirt in the starting XI as there's no better feeling than pulling on that red shirt and sticking the ball in the net.

"The hard work continues and I'm just looking to improve myself as a player and person over the next two and a half years and beyond.

"Once again I'd like to thank everyone in the academy, all of my friends and family for their support."

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
