Taylor, who earned four caps at England Under-21 level in the early stages of his career, will act as back-up for Fraser Forster and Alex McCarthy.

“It’s fantastic to be here,” Taylor told Southampton’s official website. “I was in contact with Dave Watson and he’s a fantastic goalkeeping coach. When I got a call from him asking to come down, I was over the moon.

“I know a couple of the lads who are already here, so it helps to settle in and I’m looking forward to getting on with it and enjoying it.
