Ryan Bertrand signs for Southampton

Published Add your comment

Southampton have confirmed that Ryan Bertrand has signed for the club on a permanent transfer from Chelsea.

The 25-year-old, who has impressed on loan at St Mary’s this season, has put pen-to-paper on a four-and-a-half-year contract with the south-coast club.

Bertrand was with Southampton on a season-long loan, but Chelsea have agreed to sell the full-back on a permanent basis despite hie eye-catching performances this term.

Impressive Southampton form

Jose Mourinho already has Cesar Azpilicueta and Filipe Luis in his squad and clearly feels that Bertrand would not be a first-team regular if the player was to return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

Bertrand has played all but one of Southampton’s Premier League fixtures this term - he was ineligible to play against Chelsea in December - and has scored two goals and provided two assists in 22 appearances.

However, he will miss Southampton’s forthcoming fixtures against QPR, West Ham and Liverpool after receiving a straight red card for a dangerous tackle against Swansea City on Sunday.
