Davis signs new Saints deal until 2019

By SFC Media Sat 18 Jun Club

Southampton Football Club is pleased to announce midfielder Steven Davis has signed a new three-year contract.

Davis, currently captaining Northern Ireland at UEFA EURO 2016 in France, has agreed a new deal that will keep him at St Mary’s until 2019.

The 31 year-old joined Southampton in 2012, and scored on his debut in a 3-2 defeat against then reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.

Since then, Davis has gone on to make 155 appearances for Saints, netting on 11 occasions, including five goals over the course of the 2015/16 campaign.

The midfielder has now agreed terms on a new deal ahead of the 2016/17 season, as Saints prepare to compete in the UEFA Europa League group stages for the first time.

Executive Director of Football Les Reed said: “I am delighted that Steven, another influential leader in the dressing room and on the pitch, has committed his future to Southampton Football Club.

“He is leading Northern Ireland’s campaign at EURO 2016 and representing his country and our club as a true ambassador.

“Southampton fans know only too well how much energy and effort he puts into games and our players know that when needed he will be there to help them.

“Having coached Steven myself both at club and international level, I know only too well how important he is to whichever team he is playing for.

“I am sure players and fans will be delighted with this news, as he joins Virgil, Prowsey and Fraser in extending his commitment to the club.”
