Southampton extend Rickie Lambert contract


Southampton striker Rickie Lambert, the top-scoring Englishman in the Premier League this season with 13 goals, has extended his contract by two years until 2016.

"Rickie Lambert is a very special player for Southampton Football club," team manager Mauricio Pochettino told the club's website.

"To have scored over 100 goals is a remarkable achievement, and one which he has made possible thanks to hard work and dedication."
