Southampton fullback Vokins: Bertrand has helped me a lot

Southampton fullback Jake Vokins appreciates the leadership of senior teammate Ryan Bertrand.

Vokins on Tuesday penned a fresh four-year contract at Saints having come through the youth system at the St Mary's side's academy.

He told the Saints website: “Learning from the more experienced players in the squad and training with them day in, day out, has helped me improve my game and develop as a player.

“He (Bertrand) has definitely helped me a lot.

“We chat during training, and after training he's giving me tips on what I can do to be the best full-back I can.

“I was cleaning his boots and now I'm training alongside him every day, so it's a bit surreal!"
