Southampton open contract talks with James Ward-Prowse

25-year-old James Ward-Prowse is set to be presented with an opportunity to extend his stay at Southampton.

Sun reporter Tom Barclay has revealed that the Saints are ready to begin contract talks with Ward-Prowse.

The midfielder’s present deal at St Mary’s expires in 2022.

This season Ward-Prowse has scored 4 Premier League goals and he’s chipped in with 3 assists.

 

Leicester target Ryan Bertrand already in Saints contract talks

Last Thursday, the Times claimed that Leicester City are considering a move for 30-year-old Ryan Bertrand.

According to reporter Gary Jacob, “Leicester City are increasingly resigned to Ben Chilwell leaving for Chelsea”.

In the event that Chelsea land Chiwell, the Times listed Bertrand as a possible replacement left-back at the King Power Stadium:

Brendan Rodgers, the Leicester manager, has shown interest in Ryan Bertrand, who has one year left on his contract at Southampton.

Bertrand, who will turn 31 in August, was coached by Rodgers at Chelsea’s academy and played under him on loan at Reading.

Bertrand has made 24 Premier League appearances this season for Southampton.

He’s scored one league goal and chipped in with one league assist.

Yet, the Sun’s Tom Barclay now reports that Southampton are hoping to agree a contract extension with Bertrand.
