Following the acquisition of Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen from Red Bull Salzburg, the 25-year-old becomes Leeds United third summer signing.

For Bayern, the former Spain Under-21 international made 24 appearances.

He did not score a goal for the German club and will leave after two years in the Bundesliga after joining Espanyol in 2020 on a five-year contract.

Southampton has signed two goalkeepers on five-year contracts, including Gavin Bazunu of Manchester City.

Bazunu, who has represented Ireland ten times, is said to have cost £12 million.

After a successful loan move in League One, the 20-year-old was crowned players’ player of the year at Southampton’s neighbors Portsmouth in 2021-22.

Bazunu, who joined City three years ago from Shamrock Rovers, has never appeared for the main team.

He has 84 first-team club appearances with Rovers in the League of Ireland, Rochdale on loan in 2020-21, and Pompey.

Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster joined Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer this summer, and one of their backups, Harry Lewis, has joined Bradford.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl remarked, “Gavin is a very exciting addition to the squad.”

“He is a goalkeeper with a very modern style of play, comfortable in the build-up phase, who has developed physically through some very important loan moves early in his career.

“He is already an international goalkeeper, which is very rare for his age.

“Mateusz is a player who has a lot of the right attributes we look for in a goalkeeper, and still with his best years ahead of him.”

Bazunu, on the other hand, said; “I feel like it’s a place I can come and develop and learn my game. The biggest thing is an opportunity – the fact that I can come here and have a chance to play regular football.”
