Southampton move to secure Valery’s future

News
Yan Valery has signed a new long-term contract with Southampton that ties him to the club until 2023.

Yan Valery has signed a new long-term contract with Southampton that ties him to the club until 2023.

The Saints academy product has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence since Ralph Hasenhuttl’s appointment as head coach, but it was Mark Hughes who handed the French youngster his Premier League debut in January in the Welshman’s last game in charge.

Valery has gone on to become a regular under Hasenhuttl, featuring in 15 league matches, while he has also found the back of the net against Manchester United and Tottenham.

With his contract set to expire next year, Saints have moved to secure the future of the France youth international and Hasenhuttl is expecting big things in the future.

Hasenhuttl said: “Yan’s development has been fantastic in the last few months.

I think he is a player who embodies precisely the philosophy of Southampton, as he is young and forward-thinking.

“He has been given trust by us and in return he has shown exactly what we want to see, which is a brave player who believes in himself and is willing to work on his deficits to get better.

“Already you can see Yan has improved defensively, and his goals against teams like Manchester United and Tottenham are big signs of how much his confidence has been growing.

“Players like Yan are the future of Southampton Football Club, not just the present, so I am very pleased for him and for us that he has signed this new contract.

” Valery said: ‘It’s a big step.

It proves the club believe in me and I am really proud and happy to sign again for this club.

“It is the club that gave me my chance.

This manager has given me all of his trust, so I am just happy to sign again and I can’t wait now to give everything I’ve got to help the club stay in the Premier League, and to keep working hard and improve my game and be a better player than I am now.”
