Southampton's Boruc inks two-year extension

Southampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc has signed a two-year contract extension, the club announced on Thursday.

The 33-year-old Polish international's contract was set to expire in June, but he will remain at St. Mary's Stadium until the summer of 2015.

The former Celtic goalkeeper has started each of the Saints last 15 matches, only four of which have ended in defeat.

"I am very pleased and proud to be a part of a big project," Boruc told the club's official website. "As a club, I believe we can achieve a lot over the next two years, and I'm looking forward to that."

"The Premier League is probably the best place to play football and nothing has changed my mind on that since I came to Southampton," Boruc continued.

Boruc is the latest Saints player to commit his future to the club, joining Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Morgan Schneiderlin, Jason Puncheon and Kelvin Davis, who have already penned deals with the Saints in recent months.

The Saints struggled early in the season, as newly-promoted sides tend to do, but the club has found its form recently, riding a five-match unbeaten run into Saturday's Premier League tilt against Swansea City.

Southampton currently sit in 12th place in the Premiership, seven points clear of the bottom three.
