Southampton have announced the signing of Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand on a season-long loan.

Press Association Sport understands the south-coast club have the option to buy Bertrand outright next summer.

Bertrand has been with the Blues since 2006 but has found action hard to come by, spending last season on loan at Aston Villa.

A bad night for Celtic

Celtic are facing the prospect of missing out on qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stages after a heavy defeat in their third qualifying round first-leg encounter against Legia Warsaw.

Ronny Deila's 10-man side fell to a 4-1 defeat in the Polish capital, although the match started brightly for the Hoops when Callum McGregor scored the opening goal of the game in the eighth minute.

Miroslav Radovic equalised for the hosts two minutes later and then put his side in front with nine minutes of the first half remaining before Efe Ambrose was sent off just before the interval.

Radovic then turned provider, teeing up Michal Zyro, who slotted home with six minutes of the game left and Jakub Kosecki then found the back of the net in added time to really rub salt in their opponents' wounds.

Cavani happy in Paris

Paris St Germain striker Edinson Cavani has insisted he is happy at the club despite reports suggesting he had asked to leave this summer.

I am sure to stay, why would I not?

I'm well in Paris. I have a contract to honour. I'm calm, I'd rather be here. I feel good here. However, I know it does not depend solely on the player but also on the club.

There were some small issues about the position I wanted to play but I feel very good about that now.
