Young Southampton defender Dynel Simeu has joined Tranmere Rovers on loan for the season.

The 20-year-old centre-back has moved to Prenton Park in a deadline-day deal, linking up with the League Two side.

Simeu joined Saints from Chelsea last year, before enjoying a successful loan spell at Carlisle United, and he will now look to continue his development on Merseyside.

The club wishes Dynel good luck for the season and looks forward to following his progress.
