Defender Jack Stephens pens four-year deal at Southampton

According to talkSPORT, Jack Stephens has signed a new four-year deal at Southampton.

The 26-year-old has followed in the footsteps of skipper James Ward-Prowse by choosing to extend his stay at St Mary’s Stadium until the summer of 2024.

The English footballer has smashed four goals in 91 Premier League matches since he joined the south coast side from Plymouth in 2011.

Austrian boss Ralph Hasenhuttl featured him regularly in the first team since late October last campaign, with the player racking up 28 league appearances with a goal to his name.

The Saints captain Ward-Prowse also committed his future to the club by signing a new five-year deal earlier this summer. The English side are also said to be in talks with Ryan Bertrand and Danny Ings over new deals.

Ings, who was spectacular last season and smashed 22 Premier League goals, has two years left on his current contract with the club. While Bertrand has just one year remaining on his contract.

Southampton made a disappointing start last campaign and remained in the relegation spots during the initial part of the campaign. However, performances improved in the latter stages as they ultimately finished 11th at the league table. They will be hoping to do even better this campaign under such a brilliant manager like Hasenhuttl.
