Southampton eyeing Northern Ireland keeper Michael McGovern

Southampton are eyeing Northern Ireland goalkeeper Michael McGovern.

The Sun says McGovern is wanted by Southampton after his Euro 2016 heroics.

Free agent McGovern, 32, played a blinder against Germany to make sure that Michael O'Neill's men made the last 16 – and also attracted growing interest.

Saints have made contact with the former Hamilton Accies keeper and have offered him a deal to come as cover for England's Fraser Forster.

The terms are good and tempting McGovern, who would be a replacement for veteran Kelvin Davis who has finally hung up his gloves.
