So'ton sign Fraser Forster

Southampton have confirmed the signing of England goalkeeper Fraser Forster from Celtic on a four-year deal, according to the club's official website.

The 26-year-old had been linked with a switch to the Premier League, as he was keen on a fresh challenge away from Celtic Park.

Reports earlier revealed that the talented shot-stopper had undergone a medical with the Saints, and it has now been confirmed by manager Ronald Koeman that the player would join the Saints on a four-year contract for a fee of around £10m.

"Fraser is a very talented player and we are delighted to be able to bring him to Southampton," Ronald Koeman revealed on the club's official website. "This is another important part of our rebuilding process ahead of the start of the season."
