Southampton have tied Dan N’Lundulu down to a new contract at the club. 

The promising forward has put pen to paper on a two-year extension at St Mary’s, which will keep him at Saints until 2022. 

N’Lundulu has been in good form for Southampton’s Under-23 side in the early stages of the season and was even included in Ralph Hasenhuttl’s matchday squad for the 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

Following his bright start to the campaign, the club have rewarded him with another deal. It’s safe to say that plenty of fans are delighted by the news…

N’Lundulu has arguably been the standout performer for Radhi Jaidi’s side this season. 

He has led the line well and appears to be a player who Hasenhuttl thinks highly of, given his inclusion in his preparations for the aforementioned United fixture. 

Shane Long’s contract at St Mary’s expires at the end of the season, and Saints may be keen to look towards the future by integrating N’Lundulu as their fourth-choice forward in the senior squad before next summer. 

Either way, time is on the former Chelsea academy forward’s side, and his future certainly looks bright.

Will N'Lundulu make his Saints debut this season?
