Ex-Man City striker Samuel Bellis delighted with new Southampton deal

Southampton's promising young forward Samuel Bellis has put pen to paper on his first professional contract.

Celebrating his 17th birthday last month, the highly-rated teenager has now signed a deal that runs until June 2022. He arrived last year from Manchester City.

Bellis told the club's website: “It's something I've been waiting for since I started playing football when I was five years old.

"To do it at a club like this means a lot and I just can't wait to get started properly now.

“I've settled in well; I get on with all the lads and everyone at the club has made me feel really at home."
