St Mary’s side sign Polish international.
Southampton bring in keeper Artur Boruc
Southampton have signed former Celtic keeper Artur Boruc on a free transfer.
The 32-year-old Poland international left Italian club Fiorentina during the summer and has moved to Southampton until the end of the season.
“I’m looking forward to playing in the best league in the world while I’m playing here at Southampton,” Boruc told the club’s official website.
“I missed football, so I’m really glad that I’m here and I’ve finally found the club I was looking for.”

Considering the amount of goals Southampton were shipping in a move to bring in a custodian of Artur Boruc’s experience and ability is a very wise one for boss Nigel Adkins to make.
The 32 year old had a tough time of it in Italy during his two seasons with Fiorentina and will be keen to prove himself more than capable of cutting it in the Premier League.
Adkins clearly felt he had to bring in a strong presence between the sticks to help steady his Saints defence after his side conceded a mammoth 15 goals in their first five Premier League matches this term.
Boruc was something of a cult hero at Parkhead, making 220 appearances for Celtic during his five years at the Glasgow club, collecting three SPL titles in the process.
