Saints complete Mellis move

Published Add your comment

Southampton boss Alan Pardew has completed the signing of Chelsea youngster Jacob Mellis on loan until January.

The 18-year-old midfielder has put pen to paper in time to be considered for Saints' trip to Huddersfield on Saturday.

Mellis was part of the Blues side which reached the 2008 Youth Cup final, playing alongside current Southampton defender Jack Saville, and has represented England at under-16, under-18 and under-19 level.

His favoured position is in central midfield, although he can also fill in at centre-half or full-back.
