DONE DEAL: Southampton defender Christoph Klarer cuts ties for Fortuna Dusseldorf move

Southampton defender Christoph Klarer has completed a permanent transfer to German club Fortuna Düsseldorf on deadline day.

The 20-year-old centre-back, who was a regular in the B team over previous seasons, has joined the 2. Bundesliga outfit, who are managed by former Saints forward Uwe Rösler.

An Austria youth international, Klarer joined Southampton in 2016, signing from Rapid Wien.

He initially played in the Under-18s set-up before progressing into what was previously known as the Under-23s.

Klarer joins Fortuna Dusseldorf in an outright deal.
