Southampton midfielder Oriol Romeu has signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract that will keep him at the club until 2021, the Premier League team have said.

The 25-year-old joined Southampton from Chelsea in August 2015 and has made 30 appearances in all competitions under manager Claude Puel this season. He has featured in all but one of their Premier League games so far.

"I couldn't be any happier to have this new contract with the club," the Spaniard told Southampton's website. (www.southamptonfc.com)

"Ever since I came here I have felt very, very good. Everything has been positive for me. I have developed myself and have been getting better every day."

Southampton, who are 11th in the league, travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool in the second leg of their League Cup semi-final later on Wednesday.

Southampton won the home leg 1-0 earlier this month.
