Saints starlet set to sign

Southampton are set to tie down starlet Sam McQueen to a new long-term deal, Sky Sports understands.

The 19-year-old is one of the latest graduates of Southampton's famed academy, and he made his breakthrough into the first-team squad last season.

McQueen made his senior debut in the FA Cup against Sunderland, and is expected to push on for a Premier League bow this coming season.

The Southampton-born teenager's progress has now been rewarded with a new long-term deal, which he is set to sign this week.

McQueen has come through the ranks along with the likes of James Ward-Prowse, Luke Shaw and Callum Chambers - who all enjoyed excellent campaigns last term.
