Southampton fans have reacted positively to the news that Steven Davis has committed his future to the club.
The Saints midfielder is not one of their high-profile stars, but supporters have seen beyond this and can see his value to the team.
Davis performs an unsung role, with his ability to break up play and energy providing a major asset to the team.
Although he is surrounded by more technical stars, he is still well regarded at St. Mary's and the fact he has agreed to stay until 2018 has pleased the fans.
Davis, too, says he is delighted to have his future sorted and he now wants to help Southampton kick on this season.
“I’m delighted to have signed a new contract,” Davis said to the club's official site.
“I’ve enjoyed my football since I came here and the club is continually progressing. I’m excited to see where we can go together over the next few years.
“We want to get better – that goes for the team and myself. I’d like to win trophies and continually try to improve our league position, and I feel we can do that at this club.”
Southampton are currently third in the table and Davis' contract extension only adds to the positive feeling at the club.
Ronald Koeman was awarded the manager of the month award by the Premier League, whilst Graziano Pelle picked up the player of the month trophy early this morning meaning it has been a good day for Saints fans.
Here is the best reaction to Davis' contract agreement.
