Dusan Tadic has signed a new four-year deal with Southampton.

Tadic's new deal will see him remain at the club until 2020 after having just two years left on his initial contract.

The Serbian international joined Saints from FC Twente in 2014 as one of Ronald Koeman's first signings and has since gone on to score 13 goals and record 21 assists.

Executive Director of Football Les Reed told Southampton's official website: “I am delighted that we have strengthened our commitment with Dušan, and that he has added his name to the list of players to have signed new long-term contracts in recent months.
“Dušan has been an important part of our success in the past two seasons, with his creativity offering the team a valuable dimension.
“However, it is not just his ability that makes him a key part of the squad, but also his commitment, determination and focus.

“I am confident that, under the guidance of Claude Puel, he will continue to flourish and be a central component of the squad not only this season, but in the years to come."

Tadic said that he was pleased to sign his new deal after turning down other opportunities.

The Serb said: "I am really happy that I have signed a new contract. The club showed a lot of effort to keep me. There were also other possibilities, but we recognised that the best is that I stay in Southampton, and I want to mention they put in a lot of effort for that, and I appreciate that.

"I am really pleased. I have had two beautiful years here and a great connection with the supporters and everyone in the club – all the players and the staff."

We'll have more reaction from Dusan Tadic later today.
