Highly-rated Southampton youngsters Dom Gape and Ryan Seager have both signed long term professional deals with the Premier League outfit.
Tipped for big things, the pair have come through the famed Southampton Academy, following in the footsteps of stars such as Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Under-18s skipper Gape is a tough tackling central midfielder who has already featured in the senior squad. The 18-year-old was on the bench for the League Cup win against Sheffield Wednesday earlier this season.
Striker Seager, 17, started his first full season at Under-18 level with a real bang, notching eight goals in his opening six games and has since gone on to represent England Under-17s.
