DONE DEAL: Southampton signed Yeovil goalkeeper Tommy Scott

Southampton have signed young goalkeeper Tommy Scott from Yeovil Town.

The 19-year-old has penned a one-year contract at St Mary's.

During his time as a scholar at The Glovers, Scott gained valuable experience around the first team squad and appeared on the bench on six separate occasions, most recently on the final day of the 2018/19 campaign against Carlisle United.

Scott told the club's website: “It's a great club to come to and I'm happy to be here and finally get settled in to get ready to go for the season.

“I think that's what really sold it to me; the staff, everyone is polite, it's always friendly and you're learning every day. The facilities speak for themselves really so there's nothing not to like.

“You only have to look at some of the players that have come through the Academy and gone on to the world stage internationally and at the biggest clubs in the world.

“You can see the young players here playing and they're not only coming on but starting, especially in pre-season. That gives you a boost because you think 'if they can do it, why can't I?'

“I just want to become the best I can be, work and prove to the club and everyone around that I deserve to be here. I want to be here for as long as I can and make the most out of the training."
