Defender Jason McCarthy signs new Southampton deal

London: Defender Jason McCarthy confirmed Friday he has penned a new two-and-a-half-year deal with Premier League side Southampton.

The 19-year-old made his professional debut in Saints` 3-1 win at Crystal Palace last December and has been involved in the first-team squad on a number of occasions.

Captain of the club`s Under-21s side, McCarthy`s new deal runs until 2017.

"It`s great to put pen to paper," he told Southampton`s official YouTube channel.

"Obviously at the start of the year I knew I was out of contract at the end of the season.

"I was pleased with my progress at the time and I think I`ve done well this season so far.

"I`ve been with the club since I was seven years old, so it really shows that I`m at the right place."

He becomes the second young defender in as many days to sign new deals at Saints, with Jordan Turnbull, currently on loan at Swindon, signing a deal until 2018 on Thursday.
