Southampton fans are far from happy after it was revealed the Saints are set to offer goalkeeper Alex McCarthy a new contract.
The Saints went through a mixed term last time out, reaching an F.A Cup semi-final but also finishing in 15th place in the Premier League table despite a good start. Their defence was particularly disappointing – only West Brom (76) conceded more than their 68 goals in the competition (Sky Sports).
Ralph Hasenhuttl and co have already moved one goalkeeper on this summer, with Angus Gunn completing a move to Norwich City (canaries.co.uk).
However, it appears they are not willing to let £4.5m-valued McCarthy (Transfermarkt) go as well – according to The Athletic, he is set to sign a new long-term contract that will keep him at the club.
Should McCarthy be given a new deal?
The news was shared on Twitter by @SaintsExtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the Southampton supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the McCarthy news below
“Preparing for life in the championship already by signing contracts for championship standard players”
