Brentford goalkeeper Paul Smith has completed his move to Southampton for a fee that could rise to £500,000.
He underwent a medical yesterday afternoon and signed a four-and-a-half-year contract for The Saints this morning.
The 23-year-old made 104 appearances for The Bees since his arrival from non-league Carlshalton Athletic in August 2000.
The £500,000 deal includes a initial consideration of £250,000, plus additional payments based on staged appearances and a full England cap.
The Club would like to place on record its thanks for Paul's services and wish him the best for the future.
