Ryan Bertrand has committed his future to Southampton after agreeing a new and improved 5-year deal keeping him at St Marys' until 2021.

The left-back joined the South Coast side in the summer of 2014, initially on-loan, before Ronald Koeman made the move permanent just six months later. Bertrand has become an integral part of the Southampton defence and new manager Claude Puel moved quickly to secure the services of the England international. "I'm very pleased, it's been a fantastic move for me since the day I came to this club," Bertrand told Southampton's official website. "I look forward to many more years and really pushing forward as a whole."

Heading into the week of the Euros, Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand is still receiving medical attention for a knock.

The left-back has not trained with the England national team since picking up a knock in a friendly win against Australia on May 27. After arriving at the national team's base for the European championships in Chantilly, just north of Paris, Bertrand was held out of training in order to receive treatment for the unspecified injury. With just four days before the Three Lions' tournament opener against Russia in Marseille, all signs point to Tottenham defender Danny Rose receiving the start at left-back.

Ryan Bertrand will miss England’s friendly against Germany in Berlin on Saturday after returning to Southampton for treatment.

Bertrand joined up with the national team on Monday even though he picked up an unspecified injury during the dramatic 3-2 win over Manchester United just 24 hours before. The full-back has watched his international teammate’s train all week at St Georges Park while receiving treatment, but despite the early optimism, Bertrand has now been ruled out by the England medical team. Roy Hodgson confirmed he will not be calling anyone up as a replacement leaving Danny Rose as the only recognised left-back. The news will come as a blow to West Ham defender Aaron Cresswell who was hoping to force his way into the managers European Championship plans.

Ryan Bertrand is hoping to get a chance to impress England Boss Roy Hodgson in order to cement his place in the England Euro 2016 squad, according to Sky Sports.

The defender has looked good for Southampton in the past two years and with the England squad facing a number of injuries right now, Bertrand has a chance to cement his place for Euro 2016. The defender is back in form now and should be considered in all fantasy leagues in the Premier League. He gets an extra boost in leagues that reward defenders with points for crosses or other offensive statistics.

Ryan Bertrand is huge for Southampton according to team captain Jose Fonte.

Bertrand started and played a full match even thought Ronald Koeman had said earlier last week that he's not ready for a full 90 minutes. Bertrand is safe going forward and one of the better fantasy defenders out there, especially in leagues that reward points for crosses. If he's on any waiver wires, make sure to pick him up as soon as possible. Matt Targett can be dropped.

Ryan Bertrand could return in gameweek 7 but "may not be ready for a full match".

Ronald Koeman is not sure if Bertrand is ready for a full match so that could mean another start for Matt Targett. It's hard to trust Targett in fantasy as it's very likely he'll be taken off at the hour mark if he does indeed start. It's hard to trust any Southampton fullbacks at the moment as they've been getting subbed at halftime way too often but both Cedric and Bertrand should be owned in season-long leagues. Bertrand will become a must start as soon as week eight comes around.

Ryan Bertrand has been ruled out for week six.

Bertrand has been recovering well from a knee injury and is back in training but week six comes too soon for him. Ronald Koeman is hopeful that the defender will be back to face Swansea next weekend but that could be an appearance off the bench and Bertrand isn't likely to start until week eight. He should be owned in all draft-style fantasy leagues at this point in time as he presents a top defender option once he returns.

Ryan Bertrand is hopeful to return before the end of August after undergoing two knee surgeries this summer.

Bertrand was expected to miss five-to-six weeks when the knee surgeries were first announced but he is now hoping to return before the end of August. A return around the 23rd of August, when Southampton face Watford, is possible. He is expected to make a full recovery and be at 100% when he returns. In his absence, Matt Targett will likely get the start.

Southampton Manager Ronald Koeman has revealed that Ryan Bertrand has had surgery on both knees and may well miss the start of the Premier League season.

The Saints head man indicated that Bertrand would likely be out somewhere between five and six weeks. That timeline would see him miss all of pre-season training as well as the first match or two of the season. With the rest of the Saints rear guard also in flux with Fraser Forster still injured, Nathaniel Clyne already gone to Anfield, Toby Alderweireld heading to Spurs, and Morgan Schneiderlin likely going to either Manchester United or Arsenal the Bertrand injury is particularly troublesome. It could be that only Jose Fonte and Victor Wanyama are back among Southampton's back seven.

Ryan Bertrand returned from his three-match ban to produce six fantasy points in the Yahoo! game.

Bertrand couldn't help Southampton win this week but he was decent in fantasy. Six points isn't something to write home about, but considering Southampton lost this one and Bertrand was just returning from a suspension, it's a solid return. Look for the left-back to return to his high-scoring days when Southampton face Crystal Palace at home in midweek. He should be a safe fantasy play going forward.

Southampton Football Club has signed Ryan Bertrand from Chelsea on a four-and-a-half-year contract.

Bertrand originally joined Saints on a season-long loan deal at the start of the campaign but, following a number of impressive performances, the 25 year-old has now moved to St Mary’s until 2019. It is the defender’s first permanent move away from Stamford Bridge, having enjoyed seven loan spells since making his breakthrough with the London club. Bertrand took in spells at Bournemouth, Oldham Athletic, Norwich City, Reading and Nottingham Forest before being given his chance at Chelsea.

Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand will miss three weeks after being sent off in the match against Swansea.

Ronald Koeman mentioned after the game that he believes Bertrand's challenge was only a yellow-card offense but the Saints have decided not to appeal the decision. Bertrand will miss the games against QPR, West Ham, and Liverpool and should be taken out of all fantasy rosters for the time being. He is obviously worth holding on in season-long leagues. Matt Targett will likely step in and should be a decently cheap fantasy option for managers while Nathaniel Clyne is the obvious fantasy replacement for those with Bertrand.

Ryan Bertrand is unavailable for week 19 due to a clause in his contract preventing him from playing against his parent club.

Bertrand is on loan from Chelsea and cannot face the Blues due to a clause in his contract. The options to replace him at left-back are experienced Toby Alderweireld and youngster Matt Targett. Alderweireld is a lock to play either at left-back or center-back and thus is the better fantasy option.

Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand had yet another great fantasy week despite Southampton losing 1-0 to Burnley.

Bertrand is now the highest scoring defender in the Yahoo! game. His 11 points this week came without a clean sheet and if you look at his breakdown of points it's easy to see he can contribute without clean sheets. Clean sheets: 42 points. Passes intercepted: 31. Fouls won: 20. Corners won: 18. Tackles won: 18. Continue using him with confidence in any matchup.
