• OFFICIAL: Alex McCarthy signs for Southampton




    Saints have completed the signing of Crystal Palace goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.


    Southampton have signed Alex McCarthy from Crystal Palace on a three-year deal.

    McCarthy's arrival follows hot on the heels of the departure of Paulo Gazzaniga, who has joined Segunda Division side Rayo Vallecano in Spain for a season-long loan spell.

    McCarthy, 26, has represented England at U21 level on three occasions after making his breakthrough with Reading during the 2012/13 Premier League season.

    He then departed the Madejski Stadium and swapped Berkshire for London, making the switch to Queens Park Rangers.

    A move to Crystal Palace soon followed, but with the signing of Steve Mandanda this summer, McCarthy has slipped down the pecking order and moved to Saints to continue his development.

    Executive Director of Football Les Reed said:

    "Once again, I am delighted to welcome another player to the squad at Southampton.

    "We now have two quality English goalkeepers who have both represented the country at International level.

    "I am confident that Fraser will soon be Englandís number one, and in Alex we have a young player who has already had a taste of the England senior squad, as well as excellent experience at Under-21 level.

    "Alex is ambitious and will be pushing for a starting place every time he gets the opportunity, which can only be good for Fraser and a shining example for Harry Lewis and the younger keepers below.

    "Working with Dave Watson, our keepers can only get better and, who knows, we could have two Saints stoppers at the World Cup in two yearsí time."

    I always wondered why a man who made his name playing the long ball system was left in charge of a team that is supposed to play with passing football.
