Southampton recruit young goalkeeper Lewis

The teenager will look to become the next name off the Saints production line after signing a three-year professional contract

Southampton have signed 17-year-old goalkeeper Harry Lewis from League One outfit Shrewsbury Town.

The England youth international will work with both the Under-18 and Under-21 sides at St Mary’s Stadium after signing a three-year professional contract and will hope to develop through the club’s renowned academy.

“I think just looking round the place you can see it is a fantastic football club with brilliant facilities and excellent coaching staff,” he told the club’s official website.
“I think it was a no-brainer really for me to make this move. I’ve been at Shrewsbury since I was eight and it is my hometown club.

“I’m always going to be close to them but when an opportunity like this comes around you don’t say no.
“I’m here to get better as a footballer and get as many chances as I can. That’s the most important thing for me.”
