"I am very proud to continue the adventure at Paris Saint-Germain by signing this professional contract," Weah told the club's official website.

"I am in a big club and I look forward to continuing to progress so that one day I can play for the first team."

The son of former Ballon d'Or winner George Weah, New York-born Timothy has opted to represent the United States at the international level, rather than his father's native Liberia.

Weah played for the U.S. at the CONCACAF Under-17 Championship earlier this year and is expected to be part of the team's squad at the U-17 World Cup in India in October.
