Adelaide United's emerging attacker Al Hassan Toure has signed a three-year contract extension with the A-League club.

Toure has joined midfielder Louis D'Arrigo in signing fresh deals tying them to the Reds until the end of the 2022-23 season.

Both are in the midst of breakout domestic seasons, with the Guinea-born Toure recently scoring on debut for Australia's under-23 side.

The 19-year-old shot to prominence with five goals in Adelaide's FFA Cup campaign which included being awarded the Mark Viduka medal for best-afield in the Reds' cup final win.

Toure also scored on A-League debut while D'Arrigo has seamlessly slotted into the holding midfield role vacated by departed ex-captain Isaias.

"Al Hassan and Louis are two of the best young footballers in the country so we're delighted to have secured their services for the next three years," Adelaide's football director Bruce Djite said on Friday.

"Not only do they both boast enormous potential, Al Hassan and Louis also have the right mentality and character to develop into much better players than they are today."
