Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has agreed a new four year contract at the club.

The 52-year old-succeeded Mark Hughes at St Mary’s in December 2018 following an eye catching stint at RB Leipzig.

Hasenhuttl has established himself as a popular figure at St Mary’s and impressively steered the ship back on course after October’s record breaking 0-9 home defeat to Leicester City.

It’s understood the Austrian has agreed a new deal which runs until 2024, with official confirmation expected on Tuesday.

Southampton sit 14th in the Premier League table ahead of the league’s resumption later this month.

Hasenhuttl’s men have a seven point cushion above the relegation zone with nine matches remaining.
