BARTOSZ Bialkowski is confident of signing a new deal at Saints within the next few weeks.

The Polish keeper’s current contract at St Mary’s expires this summer.

Saints have offered the 22-year-old a new deal, but he has yet to agree it.

Bialkowski is currently in his native Poland but is returning next week for the start of pre-season.

The Daily Echo understands that there has been interest in him from the German Bundesliga.

He is hoping everything will be agreed when he returns.

“I will be back at Southampton for the start of the season and I am hoping to stay with them,” he said.

“They have offered me a contract and I will be coming back to England to hopefully sign and stay.
