Southampton Football Club is pleased to announce that Academy pairing Tyreke Johnson and Kingsley Latham have both signed one-year contract extensions.

Both players have put pen to paper on deals that keep them at St Mary's until the summer of 2021.

Goalkeeper Latham, 21, began his journey in club football with Torquay United and also spent time at Yeovil Town, eventually linking up with the club's Under-18s as a second-year scholar in 2017.

Winger Johnson, also 21, was handed his Premier League debut by Ralph Hasenhüttl against Arsenal last season, having joined the club from Swindon Town in 2014, and has since made two further first-team appearances in the FA Cup.

Upon signing a fresh deal, Johnson said: "I'm delighted to have another year here. It's good that the club has seen what I've done, and has put trust and faith in me."

Latham said: "Really happy to have got the deal signed and I can look forward to the next 18 months now; working hard and seeing what happens."
