The new deal marks an increase  on his current deal of £180,000 and will make him become the best paid English player.

The champions sit top of the Premier League on goal difference above Liverpool as they welcome a Saints side who are struggling just two points above the bottom three.

But Pep Guardiola’s seemingly unstoppable side have been dealt a fresh set-back, with Kevin de Bruyne’s injury plagued season set to continue.

The Belgian suffered ligament damage during the win over Fulham following a tangle with Timothy Fosu-Mensah and is now ruled out for up to six weeks with ligament damage.

A club statement on Friday confirmed: ‘No surgery is needed but he is expected to be out for between 5-6 weeks.’
