Forster and Ward-Prowse commit to Saints


Fraser Forster and James Ward-Prowse have committed their long-term futures to Southampton.

Goalkeeper Forster has been at the club since joining from Celtic in 2014 and he has agreed a new five-year deal, while Ward-Prowse has signed a six-year contract.

"I'm delighted. It's been another good year for the club and I think there's real ambition around the place, so to commit and sign a new deal is unbelievable and I'm just looking forward to getting started again," Forster told the club's YouTube channel.

"Every player wants to keep moving forward in their career and for me especially I'm very ambitious, and I think at this club there is that real ambition and desire to keep moving forward and improve year in, year out."

Ward-Prowse came through the club's youth system before making his debut in 2011 and director of football Les Reed believes he has a big future at St Mary's.

"James is an excellent example of the club's philosophy to bring players through the academy into the first team," Reed said.

"He is the perfect role model for our young academy players and he will certainly be an important part of the club for many years to come."
