Fonte has signed a new three-year contract with Southampton, Sky Sports reports.

Fonte, who has also been announced as the new captain ahead of the 2014-15 season, has been a long-time servant for Southampton, making 182 appearances in all. Considering the number of players that have already left the club over the summer, penning Fonte to a new deal will be welcome news for Saints fans.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte finished the Premier League season with three goals and 15 clean sheets in 36 appearances for Southampton.

Fonte anchored an impressive Southampton defensive unit, picking up clean sheet points in just under half of his appearances for the Saints. He also chipped in offensively, as his three goals surprisingly made him the club's fourth-leading scorer. Overall, Fonte ended the season ranked as a Top-10 defender in the majority of fantasy leagues, which should inflate his price value at the beginning of next season.
