England goalkeeper Fraser Forster has left Celtic for £10million as Southampton continue to strengthen after a summer of departures.

This has been a tough few months for those connected with the south-coast club, with a host of players exiting St Mary's in the wake of manager Mauricio Pochettino's departure to Tottenham.

England internationals Luke Shaw, Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana were among those to leave for pastures new, leading to the term 'meltdown' being bandied around.

However, those exits have swelled the coffers and Saints made Three Lions goalkeeper Forster their fifth summer signing on Saturday, with the Celtic goalkeeper moving for a fee understood to be in the region of £10million.
