Southampton goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski is expecting to sign a new contract to stay with the League One club.
Bialkowski's current deal expires at the end of the month, but the Pole has been offered terms to prolong his time at St Mary's.
He made 10 appearances for Saints last season after spending a stint on loan at Barnsley and has been the understudy to Kelvin Davis.
The 22-year-old is due to return to the club next week and is hoping to finalise a deal to be part of Alan Pardew's plans next season.
"I will be back at Southampton for the start of the season and I am hoping to stay with them," Bialkowski told the Daily Echo.
"They have offered me a contract and I will be coming back to England to hopefully sign and stay."
