London - Southampton have signed teenage goalkeeper Harry Lewis from third tier Shrewsbury Town for an undisclosed fee, the Premier League club revealed on Monday.
Lewis agreed a three-year contract with Ronald Koeman's team and will initially work with Southampton's youth teams.
The highly-rated 17-year-old, who has represented England at Under-16 and Under-18 levels, is the grandson of Ken Mulhearn, who won the English league title as a goalkeeper for Manchester City
"It was a no-brainer really for me to make this move," Lewis told Southampton's website.
"I've been at Shrewsbury since I was eight and it is my hometown club.
"I'm always going to be close to them but when an opportunity like this comes around you don't say no."
