Southampton have completed the signing of Tottenham reserve goalkeeper Tommy Forecast for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old has signed a five-year contract at St Mary's, and will provide competition for current shot stoppers Kelvin Davis and Bartosz Bialkowski.

Forecast told the club's official website: "Spurs didn't really want to let me go, but I'm pleased it's all sorted now.

"Once I found out that Southampton wanted me, my mind was made up."

He added: "They are a huge club with a big fan base - a Premier League club really - and I can see myself developing here."

Forecast is a product of the Tottenham academy but was restricted to six appearances on the bench last season.

He joins fellow new-boys Lee Holmes, Paul Wotton and Morgan Schneiderlin in arriving at Saints this close season.
