Gavin Bazunu will move to Southampton after a 20-year-old contract with Manchester City has been signed.
Post-add-on fees could reach £ 16m and Irish goalkeepers are expected to receive medical care today.
Last week it was revealed that the transaction was almost complete. This week, Bazunu talked about wanting to continue playing first-team football. He will now join Ralph Hasenhuttle’s side and link with Shane Long and Will Smallborn.
Former Shamrock Rovers goalkeeper has been named to the League One team this season after a brilliant year in Portsmouth, maintaining 16 clean sheets in 44 games. He is also shining in the international scene, and his name has 10 caps. He kept four clean sheets in the last four games of last year.
Bazunu competes with Alex McCarthy for the number one shirt at St. Mary’s after Fraser Forster departs for Tottenham Hotspur. He missed this month’s Nations League window with a back injury on behalf of Liverpool’s Caoimhin Kelleher.
