Southampton are close to tying goalkeeper Alex McCarthy on a new contract.

McCarthy’s current contract expires at the end of this season, but an extension, understood as a three-year contract, is nearing completion.

The 31-year-old joined Southampton in 2016 from Crystal Palace and has made more than 120 appearances for the club.

He has re-established himself as a first choice this season after fighting for the role with Fraser Forster during the second half of the last term.

McCarthy has started every league game for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side and only Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy and Manchester City’s Ederson have kept more than their five clean sheets in the Premier League in 11 games so far this season.

Southampton is poised to secure McCarthy’s future ahead of a summer shakeup of its goalkeeping department.

Forster’s contract also expires at the end of the season and he is expected to leave with the arrival of a new plug.

Southampton is among the clubs monitoring England goalkeeper Sam Johnstone’s situation in West Brom, alongside West Ham and Tottenham.
