Southampton have revealed that their goalkeeper Artur Boruc has signed a new deal with the club according to Sky Sports.

The Polish international now looks set to remain with the Saints until 2015.

The 33 year old former Celtic goalkeeper looked set to leave the club at the end of the season when his previous deal was due to expire.

But Southampton have now moved to secure Boruc’s future at the club and the player looks set to remain for at least another two years.

Boruc largely found himself left out of the squad under the club’s previous manager Nigel Adkins. But he has found favour with new Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino and has become a first team regular under the former Espanyol gaffer.

Boruc was brought into the team for the club’s New Year’s Day draw with Arsenal after which he has since gone on start in the club’s next fifteen matches.

The Polish goalie would undoubtedly be keen to point out that Southampton have lost just four times during that run.

‘I am very pleased and I’m proud to be a part of a big project,’ said Boruc.

‘As a club, I believe we can achieve a lot over the next two years, and I’m looking forward to that.

‘The Premier League is probably the best place to play football and nothing has changed my mind on that since I came to Southampton.

‘The new manager has changed a lot – we’re playing totally different football, and I think that football is quite nice to watch and quite effective.’

His manager, Mauricio Pochettino added, ‘I’m very happy and very satisfied. Artur deserves this contract because, in the three months that I’ve been here, he has been crucial for us.

‘He has a very strong personalty and character. He is very brave in the way that he plays and, with our brand of football, it’s very important that we have a ‘keeper like Boruc for the long term.’
