Southampton has confirmed a new three-year contract for center-back Maya Yoshida through the 2020 season.
After selling Jose Fonte last winter and seeing the Virgil van Dijk transfer saga play out, a new deal for Yoshida seems prudent. The Japanese international came up huge for Southampton last season, where he made 23 league appearances, and is now considered the cornerstone of the club's defense. "There was no reason to leave the club," he said. "I have been here for five years. In that time, I have had difficult moments, good moments – everything. I feel like it's my home and I'm very happy to continue my journey with Southampton. It's a new chapter for my career." Aug 24 - 12:48 PM
