Southampton have confirmed that Jan Bednarek has signed a new contract at the club.
Poland international Bednarek made the move to the Saints in 2017, with him costing the south-coast side about £5m from Lech Poznan. Since then, he has made 85 appearances in all competitions for the club, with him playing every minute of every single game so far this campaign in the Premier League under Ralph Hasenhuttl.
As such, it is a big boost to the club that he has extended his stay until 2025. Currently valued at £13.5m (Transfermarkt), the central defender is 24 years old, and has a big future ahead of him if he can continue to develop at St. Mary’s Stadium under Hasenhuttl.

I honestly didn’t see this coming! I had a feeling for some time that Bednarek would perhaps see out his contract until the last year then leave. He’s a full Poland international & could probably step up a level now he’s fully established himself in the PL. Great news! #saintsfc https://t.co/Kwx65O2Xmw
