Forster on verge of Southampton move

Southampton are on the brink of completing the signing of Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster after they agreed a fee of around £10m with the Scottish champions, the Guardian has reported.

The move has been in the pipeline for a number of days, with Saints boss Ronald Koeman looking to provide more competition for current first choice goalkeeper Artur Boruc, himself a former Celtic player. Former Gillingham youngster Paulo Gazzaniga and veteran stopper Kelvin Davis currently provide the back-up to the Pole.

Forster arrived in Southampton on Friday evening to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms. Should everything pan out as planned, he would join Dusan Tadic, Graziano Pelle and Ryan Bertrand on moving to the St. Mary’s Stadium this summer.

Forster has spent the last four seasons at Celtic, but the Glasgow side did not sign him permanently until 2012, after two campaigns on loan from Newcastle United, the club where he began his career but was given few opportunities to impress.

He has gone on to impress for Celtic, helping them to win three successive Scottish league titles as well as the Scottish Cup. He has received the most plaudits, however, for his performances in the Champions League, and as a result he is now established as England’s third-choice keeper.
