Southampton’s reigning Player of the Season, Nathan Redmond, has signed a new four-year contract at St Mary’s, the club is delighted to announce.
The 25-year-old, who won both the fans’ and players’ awards in 2018/19, has strengthened his commitment with the club by agreeing the long-term deal, which runs through to the summer of 2023.
Redmond produced a standout campaign last term and was an integral part of the resurgence under manager Ralph Hasenhüttl, scoring nine times in the final six months of the season, as he took his overall record for the club to 129 appearances and 18 goals.

His form also pushed him back into the England fold, as he was selected to the initial Nations League finals squad by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate in the summer, with Redmond previously a regular in his country’s youth teams and having earned his first senior cap in 2017.
Having put pen to paper ahead of the start of the 2019/20 campaign this weekend, Redmond now has his sights on producing another season to remember.
Nathan Redmond said: “I’m really happy to have signed, and I'm just wanting to get the season up and going now.
“We've got a great group of players here, who I've been with for the last three years. I see them every single day and it's a pleasure to go out there and perform with them at the weekend and train hard with them every single week. I feel like we can hopefully build something special and to be a part of it for the next four years is good for me.”
Ralph Hasenhüttl said: “It is very good news for the club. He's a player who showed in the last season that he is very important for Southampton and I think it's a massive signal for the club, and for us all, that he wants to follow our way. It's a very positive day for us.”
