Southampton striker Sam Gallagher has signed a new four year contract with the club.
The 21 year old was a twinkle of brightness in Blackburn Rovers' relegated side last season, netting 12 times as they former PL champions were relegated to League One. His fine form and clear potential hasn't been missed by Southampton's management who have offered Gallagher the new covenant. According to local outlet the Daily Echo, Gallagher will not be moving on loan again this term as he is seen as part of the first team's strikeforce, battling for game time with Gabbiadini, Austin and Shane Long. Saints chairman Les Reed said: "The experience Sam gained last season at Blackburn Rovers in the Championship was invaluable, and it was clear to see the further improvement that he made in his game...". He added that Gallagher "has many exciting years ahead of him, and that this is the ideal place for him to realise the great deal of potential that he still possesses." Jul 5 - 3:16 PM
