Southampton goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski has pledged his future to the club by signing a new two-year contract.
Bialkowski's previous deal at St Mary's had expired at the end of last season and he had taken time to reach an agreement over an extension.
The Pole had returned for pre-season training and, on the eve of the 2010/11 campaign, has signed on with Alan Pardew's side.
The deal will keep Bialkowski on the South Coast initially until 2012 and there is also the option of a further two-year extension.
Bialkowski, who joined Saints four years ago, made 10 appearances for the club last season and also had a spell on loan at Barnsley.
