Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond has signed for Southampton in a club record sale for the Canaries.

The 22-year-old passed a medical on the south coast today and moves to St Mary's for a fee believed to be in the region of £11 million.

Leroy Fer's £10 million switch to QPR previously held the record for the biggest fee ever received by Norwich.

Redmond played more than 100 games for the Canaries and scored in The Championship play-off final against Middlesbrough at Wembley two years ago.

Birmingham City will be entitled to some of the transfer fee after they inserted a sell-on clause when they sold him to Norwich.

He tweeted the following tribute to Norwich City and their fans, and says he hopes to see them in the Premier League again soon.

Colchester United defender Joe Edwards has left the club to sign for League One side Walsall.

The 25-year-old made more than 40 appearances for the U's last season, but will now join the Saddlers once his contract expires at the end of the month.

I’m delighted to be here.

It’s a fantastic club and they had a really good season last year.

I’ve played against Walsall a few times before and they have always been a very good footballing side. They like to pass it about and they play with a good intensity.

I had a meeting with the manager a few weeks ago and I came away thinking this was the club for me.

– Joe Edwards, Walsall

Edwards follows Alex Gilbey and George Moncur in leaving Essex this week.

Meanwhile, Peterborough United have signed Crawley Town attacking midfielder Gwion Edwards for an undisclosed fee.

Luton Town have signed highly-rated Brighton and Hove Albion goalkeeper Christian Walton on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old had spells at Plymouth Argyle and Bury last season and has represented England at various youth levels.

Walton worked with Hatters boss Nathan Jones at Brighton and will be reunited with him again at Kenilworth Road.

I am delighted to have signed a player of Christian’s quality and pedigree.

I worked close to him at Brighton and I know he has the potential to be a top keeper. It is a real coup for us as he had many options, but he's chosen us as he believes in what we do.

I’d like to thank Brighton for their co-operation and desire to get this deal done. We feel we've added real quality this summer, and Christian is another hand-picked piece in our jigsaw.

– Nathan Jones, Luton Town manager

Northampton Town have signed former Peterborough United defender Gaby Zakuani on a free transfer.

The Congolese international made more than 200 appearances for Posh but was released this summer.

30-year-old Zakuani has agreed a one-year contract at Sixfields.

Gaby is a huge character and is an excellent addition.

He will be a big presence, not just on the pitch but in the dressing room as well and will be perfect for some of the younger members of the squad to look up to and learn from.

He has given fine service to the clubs he has represented and I'm sure he will do the same for Northampton Town.

– Rob Page, Northampton Town manager

The Cobblers have also brought in ex-Barnsley midfielder Jak McCourt who was released following the Tykes' promotion to The Championship.

McCourt had a spell on loan at Port Vale under Rob Page's management last year.

He has agreed a two-year deal.

England have selected Teimana Harrison at openside flanker in the only change made for Saturday's attempt to complete a series whitewash over Australia at Allianz Stadium.

Harrison wins his second cap after James Haskell conceded defeat in his battle to recover from the foot injury sustained in the 23-7 victory in Melbourne that established an unassailable 2-0 lead Down Under.

The rugged New Zealand-born back row has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Northampton and is preferred ahead of Jack Clifford in Sydney.

"Teimana comes into the side at seven for James Haskell whose foot hasn't quite recovered from Saturday," said Eddie Jones, who has left the bench intact.

"Teimana has trained well throughout the tour and deserves his spot. He's an excellent defender and his robustness will be important to us at the start of the game. Jack Clifford is unlucky to miss out, but will finish the game for us."
