Southampton Football Club is delighted to announce that goalkeeper Fraser Forster has signed a new five-year contract.
The 29-year-old had penned a deal until 2021 last summer, but has now extended that by another season, taking his commitment through to 2022.
England international Forster arrived at St Mary’s in 2014 and has gone on to make 103 appearances for the club since then, including being the only ever-present during the 2016/17 Premier League campaign.
Vice Chairman (Football) Les Reed said: “We are extremely pleased to have strengthened our commitment with Fraser, who has been an integral part of our team over the past three seasons.

“He has already established himself as one of the leading keepers in the Premier League and, at 29, we believe he still has his best years ahead of him, not just for us but also the national team.
“This is the ideal place for him to continue his progress, under the guidance of our Head of Goalkeeping, Dave Watson, and we are delighted that Fraser continues to see his long-term future at Southampton.”
Fraser Forster said: “I’m delighted. I have absolutely loved my time here at Southampton so far and when the opportunity came along to extend it I didn’t think twice about it.
“I think it’s a fantastic club to be at, with a really bright future, and the ambition shown at the club is one where they want to move it forward, so for me it was a no-brainer.”
