Southampton have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu from Manchester City.
The 20-year-old, who already has 10 caps for Republic of Ireland, moves to St Mary’s on a five-year deal, becoming the club’s first new recruit of the summer.
Bazunu had an impressive breakthrough season on loan at Saints’ south coast rivals Portsmouth.
Saints were looking to bolster their goalkeeping ranks with Fraser Forster leaving on a free transfer to join Spurs.
It is understood they have paid City an initial £12million for Bazunu, which could rise to £15m with potential add-ons.
Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl said: “As a club, we are always on the lookout for young talent and Gavin is a very exciting addition to the squad. We believe he has tremendous potential to improve and will give us great competition for places in the goalkeeping department.
“He is a goalkeeper with a very modern style of play, comfortable in the build-up phase, who has developed physically through some very important loan moves early in his career.
“He is already an international goalkeeper, which is very rare for his age. Coming from Manchester City, we know he has learned from some of the very best coaches and teammates, and coming here gives him more opportunities to develop his game through playing in the Premier League.”
Tottenham have confirmed the signing of Yves Bissouma from Brighton & Hove Albion for around £25million.
The midfielder has penned a four-year deal after four years with the Seagulls.
Bissouma joins Fraser Forster and Ivan Perisic to become Antonio Conte’s third senior signing of the summer.
Mali international Bissouma will provide competition in midfield to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Rodrigo Bentancur and Oliver Skipp with the futures of Harry Winks, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso all uncertain.
The 25-year-old moved to the south coast in 2018 and made more than 100 appearances in all competitions for the Seagulls. In the process he proved himself to be one of the best midfielders in England’s top flight.
Brighton boss Graham Potter said: “The transfer is a very good one for the club and player.
“Yves has shown his undoubted ability and been an important player for us during his time with us.
“Now he has a new challenge with Tottenham, including the opportunity to play Champions League football, and everyone at the club wishes him well.”
