Romeo Lavia joins Southampton

Romeo Lavia has left Manchester City to join Southampton on a permanent transfer.

The 18-year-old midfielder joined City from Belgian club Anderlecht in 2020, signing his first professional contract.

Since then he has helped the Club's Elite Development Squad to back-to-back Premier League 2 titles.

The Belgian made his first team debut in City's 6-1 Carabao Cup win over Wycombe Wanderers in September 2021 before a second appearance as a late substitute in January’s Emirates FA Cup victory at Swindon Town.

Everyone at City wishes Romeo the best of luck for the remainder of his career.
