Shaw: New deal with Southampton

Southampton's highly-rated full-back Luke Shaw has signed a new five-year deal with the club.

Saints announced the news on their official Twitter feed, making the 18-year-old the second of their players to pen a new deal.

Lloyd Isgrove earlier signed a one-year extension, but it is the renewal of Shaw which will please the club's fans all the more.

A breakthrough season last time out earned him many plaudits and a call-up to the Under-21 European Championship, although injury ruled him out.

He was linked with a move away as a result of his form, but the club celebrated Shaw's 18th birthday today by announcing the deal with 29 first-team appearances already to his name.

"I'm very pleased to have finally signed it," Shaw told his club's official website tonight.

"I committed myself back in January, and I'm glad everything has been sorted out.

"I've been getting a lot of questions about my future, but all of the Saints fans will have known that I committed my future in January.

"I've been here since I was eight and I've loved every single moment of it. I want to stay at this club, and signing this contract means I'm here for another five years."

Like Shaw, Isgrove also broke through last season after making his debut in the Capital One Cup at Leeds.

The 20-year-old was named in the squad for the final two Barclays Premier League games of last season and has today signed a fresh contract.

"Lloyd has shown a great deal of potential during his early years with the club, and he deserves this new contract in recognition of the hard work he puts in," manager Mauricio Pochettino told Southampton's official website.

"He has impressed me in his performances for the Under-21s and with his attitude on the training ground, having taken part in first-team sessions regularly last season.

"He now has the chance to demonstrate at senior level the qualities he has shown during his time with the academy and development squad."
