Southampton announce signing of Nathan Redmond from Norwich City
Southampton have announced the signing of Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond.
England under-21 international Redmond, who joined the Canaries in the summer of 2013, had also been linked with Stoke City.
His departure from Carrow Road appeared increasingly likely after Norwich were relegated from the Premier League last season.
Redmond, 22, scored six goals in a difficult campaign for the East Anglian side, making 34 appearances.
He becomes Southampton's first signing of the summer and told the club's official website: "When Southampton said they were interested, it felt like the right move for me, and I can't wait to get started now.
"I'm really pleased to have made the move. It's a fantastic football club with excellent facilities, and I really feel I can develop my game here.
"The club's style of play has always been excellent. They like to play attacking football, and that's a style I feel I can really fit in well with."
Director of football Les Reed added: "I'm delighted to be able to welcome Nathan to Southampton.
"Despite being just 22, Nathan has gained plenty of experience in the Premier League with Norwich City, showing his quality at the top level on a consistent basis.
"While Nathan has already gained Premier League experience, he has the potential to continue developing and becoming an integral part of the squad for years to come."
Southampton are currently without a manager after Ronald Koeman's move to Everton.
