Now it seems that Belmadi has decided that his future lies with Saints and he is expected to sign a new deal imminently.
Boss George Burley told saintsfc.co.uk:-
'Djamel's agent has spoken to the chairman and agreed a new contract. It looks as if he is going to sign a one-year deal which is encouraging.'
Burley was also quick to praise the Algerian player telling the official website:-
'He has good skill on the ball and can pick out a pass so I am looking forward to having him here when we begin pre-season training on Monday.'
Burley was also optimistic that midfield man Oakley would also sign a new deal, although he is thought to favour a contract longer than the one year deal he has been offered.
Burley, speaking to saintsfc.co.uk, said that he hoped Oakley would still be a member of the squad next season.
'I am hoping Matt will join us for training on Monday.'
