Southampton boss Nigel Adkins is delighted with their deal for Artur Boruc.

Adkins is delighted to bolster Southampton's goalkeeping options.

"We're very pleased," he said. "Artur has great experience from Celtic and Fiorentina, and from playing for the national team in Poland.

"He now gives us a third goalkeeper in the building, which is important because the potential for injuries and people getting sent off means we have to cover ourselves. He gives us great back-up and competition.

"Paulo is a very young goalkeeper and he did ever so well for us today, and everyone knows how much I rate Kelvin - what a great character he is and how important he's been in what we've done here at Southampton.

"Artur now comes in as a third goalkeeper with a vast amount of experience."
