Some Southampton fans have made it clear that they will be delighted if Shane Long signs a new contract at St. Mary’s.

Tom Barclay from the Sun recently reported through his Twitter account that the striker is currently in talks with Southampton to extend his deal at the club. He also went on to say that the contract in question is expected to be an extension of two years with his current deal expiring in the summer.

Does Shane Long deserve the new contract?

He surely deserves it

He should leave

He should leave

On hearing this piece of news, many Southampton fans were delighted. They feel the former Hull City man deserves a new deal.

So far this season, Long has made 20 appearances in all competitions for the Saints. He has racked up a tally of just two goals and four assists. Although, the two goals that he has scored have come against teams that are currently above Southampton in the table in Spurs and Wolves.

What do we think?

While he maybe 33, Long adds a lot of experience and depth to the Saints side. His numbers show that he isn’t the most prolific goalscorer, but the fact that he scores against arguably better sides shows his value.
