Southampton Football Club is pleased to confirm that goalkeeper Stuart Taylor has signed a new one-year contract.

The 36-year-old arrived at St Mary’s in the early part of last season to provide additional support and has agreed to extend his stay through the 2017/18 season.

Taylor, who is a two-time Premier League and FA Cup winner, will continue to provide added depth to the goalkeeping department throughout the coming year, backing up Fraser Forster and Alex McCarthy.

Vice Chairman (Football) Les Reed said: “Stuart was a fantastic presence in the squad last season, and the support he offered to his fellow goalkeepers and his teammates as a whole was first-class.

“We are very pleased that he will again be part of the squad for the coming season."

Speaking about the new deal, Taylor said: "I'm obviously delighted to have signed for another year.

“It's a great bunch of lads and a great group, and I'm looking forward to working again with a great goalkeeper coach and a great squad of goalkeepers.”
