The young defender penned a five-year deal with the Premier League club, coming over as record £6.5m (£5.2m) record transfer for the Polish Ekstraklasa.

Preparations for the next season for the Saints begin on next Monday. However, due to the fact that Bednarek recently participated in the U-21 UEFA European Youth Championship, he will join the rest of the team later in July after a short break.
