Young International signs on the dotted line

Southampton have made their first signing of the summer with Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu joining on a five-year deal from Manchester City for £12 million.

Though just 20 years old, he already has 10 international caps to his name and won many admirers after saving a penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo last year in a World Cup Qualifier in Portugal.

Bazunu joined City from Shamrock Rovers at just 16 and although he never made a first team appearance for Pep Guardiola’s side, he gained experience over several loans and was player of the season last year at League One Portsmouth.

Following Fraser Forster’s move to Tottenham on a free transfer this summer, Bazunu is expected to challenge Alex McCarthy for the number one spot.
