Saints Sign Bees Keeper

Last updated : 28 January 2004 By Mad Reporter
The 24-year-old keeper has cost the Saints £500,000.

"This was really where I wanted to be. The sheer size of the club is impressive from the stadium to the first-class training ground," he said.

"I was very impressed by what Southampton had to offer and by their goalkeeping coach David Coles.

"He had a lot of fresh and different ideas and he is a really nice man too.

"He worked us hard but I have no problem with that because I am here to learn and improve.

"There were a few teams watching me but it was not too unsettling even though I knew I wanted to play in the Premiership."
