The 18-year-old midfielder penned an extension to his contract on Monday, which means he will remain at St Mary's until the summer of 2017.

Ward-Prowse has featured in seven Premier League fixtures for the Saints this season.

Manager Nigel Adkins said: "As one of the youngsters coming through the system, James has done ever-so-well since he stepped up to the first team during pre-season.

"He started the first game of the season and played there on merit.

"He's a great lad in respect of being a role model for the younger players, and he works very hard at his game every single day.

"We're delighted that we've got a hungry and ambitious young man who has now committed his longer-term future to the football club."

Ward-Prowse added: "It was nice that we got the win on Saturday, and it's nice to put pen-to-paper. I can kick on from here.

"That's been my dream since I was a young kid, so to get to that stage is fantastic."

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
