Southampton have informed through their official website that promising defender Oludare Olufunwa has signed a contract extension at the club until June 2020.
The 17-year-old starlet would have walked away from Saint Mary’s as a free agent at the end of June 2019 if he was not offered a new deal.
In the 2018/19 season, Oludare Olufunwa made 18 appearances for Southampton U18 and U23 respectively. He netted one goal.
The composed ball-playing defender joined The Saints in 2010, rising through the ranks before making his debut for the U18 team during the 2017/18 season as a schoolboy.
He has no international representation to date but is eligible to play for his country of birth, England and Nigeria.
