 Done deal! Southampton sign Fraser Forster from Celtic in £10 million transfer

Southampton have completed the signing of Fraser Forster from Celtic.

The goalkeeper signs a four year contract with The Saints in a deal that was officially undisclosed but is believed to be in the region of £10 million.

Forster has built his reputation off the back of some fantastic performances for Celtic in Europe. His displays attracted the attention of top clubs around Europe and earned selection for national duty.

The giant goalie, standing at an enormous 6’7, has represented England on two occasions and is a regular squad member.

We can assume that Forster will now be Southampton’s first choice goalkeeper ahead of previous number one Artur Boruc.

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman said: “Forster is a very talented player and we are delighted to be able to bring him to Southampton. This is another important part of our rebuilding process ahead of the start of the season.”
