Southampton have started off the new year by confirming that Stuart Armstrong has signed a new contract with the club.
The Scotland international made the move to St. Mary’s Stadium in 2018 for the fee of £7m, and has so far made 79 appearances for the Saints. He has netted 11 times during that time, providing a further seven assists, and he has proven to be an increasingly important player for Ralph Hasenhuttl.
That has led to him signing a new deal that will keep him on the south coast until 2024. Getting an important player to commit his long-term future to the club is a fantastic way to start off 2021 – now many supporters will be waiting for Danny Ings to do the same.
