Southampton agreed a deal worth around £5million with Chelsea to land Livramento.

The deal will also include sell-on and buy-back clauses for Chelsea, the latter understood to be significantly more than £25m.

Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl said: 'He is one of the best young players in his position in the country and there were a lot of clubs who were interested in signing him, but finally he chose to join us.

'I think he has made a very good choice, and this will be an excellent place for him to continue his development and hopefully reach his full potential.

'He is very much in line with the profile of player we want and I think he will adapt very well to our system and methods. To be around the first team of Chelsea at his age speaks about his ability.'
