Bertrand, 31, joined the Saints from Chelsea in 2014, initially on-loan before making his £11.97m switch permanent the following season.
Since arriving on the south coast, the resolute full-back has featured in over 220 matches in all competitions.
After cementing his place as one of current manager Ralph Hassenhutl’s most trusted squad members, there is a desire to tie the defender down to a new contract.
The 31-year-old defender’s current deal is set to expire in the summer and with every passing day there are growing concerns the Saints could lose their trusted full-back to a domestic rival.
CaughtOffside has recently obtained exclusive information from a close source who has revealed that the 31-year-old has been offered a new three-year deal.
However, in an attempt to weigh-up his options, Bertrand has yet to put pen-to-paper.
We also understand that Premier League title challengers Leicester City remain firmly interested in the Saints full-back.
