Southampton have signed goalkeeper Fraser Forster from Scottish champions Celtic on a four-year contract for a fee in the region of £10m.

Forster recently travelled with the England squad to the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals, where he worked with Southampton’s new Senior Goalkeeping Coach, Dave Watson.

In a statement on the club's website, First Team Manager Ronald Koeman said: 'Fraser 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.

'The fact that he has worked with Dave Watson before means we already know all about his strengths and weaknesses, and I am confident that we will be able to help him improve even further.

'Fraser is the perfect fit to help complement the players we already have, and he will add a lot of quality to the squad.

'He is an exciting English player with a very good reputation within the game and, at 26, he will enjoy the best years of his career at Southampton.'
