He was rewarded with a one year contract extension in 2019.
First team call-up
Tella featured in the warm-up win against Bristol City ahead of the Premier League resumption in June 2019 and got his first appearance in a Saints shirt in the first game after the restart as Saints beat Norwich City 3-0 just a few days later.
He wouldn't feature again in the 2019/20 season but was named on the bench by manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
The striker then would get his full first team debut as he started in the 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Brentford in September 2020.
