Lambert wants long Saints career

Published Add your comment

Southampton striker Rickie Lambert admitted he would like to stay at the club for the rest of his career after he signed a new three-year deal.

Lambert was a key figure in helping Saints seal automatic promotion to the Championship last season, scoring 21 goals in 45 league games. The 29-year-old joined the club in 2009 after a successful three-year spell at Bristol Rovers, where he claimed 59 goals in 139 starts.

He told Saints Player: "It was always in my mind to sign another contract at Southampton and I'm just made up I've done that now. I would love to finish my career at Southampton because I'm going to prove now I can play at this level and then on to Premiership level as well, which if I do then there will hopefully be another contract at the end of these three years which I'm hoping for."

He added: "It's the ambition of the club and my own to get into the Premiership and I'm hoping that what's going to happen."
