Celtic agree Forster to Southampton

Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster has been given permission to finalise a move to Southampton, ESPN sources have been told.

Forster has been linked with Southampton throughout the summer and our sources believe a deal has been in place for Forster to move to Southampton 'for some time', with a reported fee of around 10 million pounds having been agreed.

Celtic's eagerness to hang on to Forster while they were still involved in Champions League qualifying action delayed the completion of the deal in the last couple of weeks. Even though Ronny Deila's men have been given a second chance in the competition following Legia Warsaw's expulsion by UEFA, the Scottish Premier League side have given the deal the green light.

Our sources tell us that Forster's arrival at Southampton is likely to prompt the departure of Polish keeper Artur Boruc, who has failed to impress new Saints boss Ronald Koeman during pre-season training.

Forster's move to Southampton is also good news for his former club Newcastle, who are entitled to 25 percent of the fee Southampton are paying Celtic as part of the terms of his transfer from the St James' Park club to Parkhead in 2012.
