Southampton Snap Up Irish Prospect As World Cup Star Leaves
By Eoin Lyons

Southampton have announced the signing of Sligo Rovers youth Seamus Keogh. The 16-year-old midfielder has represented Ireland at U17 level and has captained his country at U15 and U16 levels.

Head of Sligo Rovers Youth Development Danny O'Leary congratulated Keogh on the move stating that it was "thoroughly earned":

The move was on the cards for quite a while and the club are happy with the agreement made. While we are sorry to lose him as a Sligo Rovers player, a Premier League academy is a chance for Seamus to continue his growth as a player and we respect that.

His attitude and commitment have been second to none. I want to thank Seamus and his parents. Conor O'Grady and Marcel Gordon gave Seamus excellent coaching for the U-15s and likewise all the staff at the U-17s and his previous club Benbulben FC offered a great grounding.

As he moves over, we offer our very best wishes to Seamus.

In other news, Serbia star Dusan Tadic has agreed to leave the club after a €11.4 million offer was accepted by the club from Ajax. Tadic will move back to the Eredivisie, the 29-year-old was at FC Twente when he moved to the Saints in 2014 for £10.9 million.

Tadic and Serbia were eliminated from the World Cup on Wednesday after losing 2-0 to Brazil thanks to goals from Paulinho and Thiago Silva.
