STATEMENT: José Fonte signs new Southampton contract

By SFC Media time Fri 08 Aug Club

Southampton Football Club is pleased to confirm that José Fonte has signed a new three-year contract.

The defender today finalised terms on a new deal to keep him at St Mary’s until 2017, and will take up the captaincy of the team for the coming season.

After putting pen to paper, Fonte commented: “I am very excited to be signing this new contract for another three years.

“This is where I feel at home and I’ve been very successful at this club in the last five years, so it was an easy decision.

“What made we sign was first that we signed a very good manager and second that the fans have been very good with me. They love me and I have a very good relationship with them.

“Thirdly, I believe that we have enough quality in the team, and that with as few additions we will have a very good season and will try to do the same as last year or even better if we can.

“I can promise that everyone in the squad will be working 100 per cent to be better than last year.”
