Goalkeeper Alex Mccarthy Join Southampton

Southampton have signed goalkeeper Alex McCarthy from Crystal Palace. The clubs have agreed a fee of around £4m, plus bonuses. The deal was concluded after he passed his medical on Monday.

The south coast club wanted to sign a new back-up goalkeeper to Fraser Forster, after Kelvin Davis retired and on-loan Maarten Stekelenburg returned to Fulham before his sale to Everton. He becomes Southampton's third signing of the summer.

McCarthy said: “I'm over the moon to join a club like this. The club is known for producing young players and they've had successful seasons. There's the Europa League to look forward to this season, so there's going to be a lot of games. With the stature of the club, I'm honoured to be here and I'm looking forward to getting working with everyone.”

McCarthy only signed for Crystal Palace last summer from QPR, where he had spent a season as deputy to Rob Green following a transfer from Reading.
