Ricki Lambert can play out his career at Southampton.

Ricki Lambert can play out his career at Southampton.

The Daily Mail says Lambert can stay at Southampton for the rest of his career under a gentleman's agreement when he signed his £40,000 a week contract.

The Southampton striker, who scored in Saturday's 4-3 victory over Burnley in the FA Cup third round, must play a part in at least half the club's matches to keep his side of the bargain.

In return, the England forward, who has a contract with Southampton until 2016, can stay on the same terms.

Provided he plays at least half of Saints' matches during the 2015/16 season he will be offered a year's extension at £40,000 a week. And so on each summer, until he hangs up his boots.
