SAINTS have signed Charlton right back Frazer Richardson in a deal worth £450,000.

The 27-year-old, who was named in the League One team of the year last season, has moved to St Mary's on a three-year deal.

The former England Under-20 international previously captained Leeds.

His signing addresses a key need for Saints, who have been without a recognised right back since the end of the season.

"Southampton expressed an interest in me and then made an offer to Charlton that I don't think they could refuse," said Richardson.

"I'm thoroughly delighted to be here."
