Southampton Manager Martin Signs new Deal

Southampton boss Russell Martin has signed a new three-year deal at the club.

The 38-year-old guided Saints to an instant return to the Premier League last season after Championship play-off final victory over Leeds.

The ex-Norwich defender has been rewarded with a new contract that is a one-year extension to the three-year deal he signed last summer.

Martin's coaching staff of Matt Gill, Dean Thornton, Colin Calderwood, Carl Martin, Rhys Owen and Ben Parker have also signed new contracts with the club.
