Guly do Prado has signed a one-year contract extension with Barclays Premier League new boys Southampton.

The Brazilian forward, who has scored 22 goals in 85 appearances for Saints, will now stay at St Mary's until at least the summer of 2014.

He told the club's official website, "I'm very happy to have signed a new contract. To be able to stay here for another year to help the team was very important for me, and I think I have a big opportunity this season. I'm happy and my family are happy to stay here, so it was good to sign a new contract."
