Paulo Gazzaniga signs new Southampton deal

Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga signs a new four-year contract at the club.

Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga has signed a new four-year contract at the club.

The 23-year-old joined Saints from League One side Gillingham in 2012 and has made 21 appearances for the club in all competitions since his arrival at St Mary's.

However, Fraser Forster's impressive form meant that the Argentine featured mainly for Saints' youth side last season as they won the Under-21 Premier League Cup.

Gazzaniga told the club's official website: "I am very happy. Since I came here from Gillingham, I have been growing up every day and with every training session and game.

"Every new person who comes to the club says that Southampton is like a family, and I can still say the same after three years. I am very comfortable here.

"Of course, if you ask any player, getting minutes is important but I am realistic – I know the goalkeeper position is difficult. I will still keep growing and keep training."

Gazzaniga made two Premier League appearances for Southampton last season following Forster's injury in March, but he is yet to feature for the club this season.
