Forster is joining Southampton. The Saints are acquiring the England international from Celtic in a ten million pound deal. The four-year contract is not finalized yet, pending the results of medical tests. Newcastle FC, where Forster played before joining Celtic, will receive a quarter of the transfer fee. Saints coach Ronald Koeman is pleased with the signing:
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.
