The Kenya international, who turns 25 on Saturday, had asked to leave last year after Tottenham first expressed an interest, but stayed on at St Mary's.

Chantome told Rennes' official website: "I was convinced by what [head coach] Christian Gourcuff had to say. I'm looking forward to working with him. I had a difficult season at Bordeaux.

Udinese 23.6.16
Fofana leaves Manchester City for Udinese

Manchester City have confirmed the departure of 21-year-old midfielder Seko Fofana to Udinese on a five-year deal. Fofana joined City from Lorient three years ago and was capped by France all the way up to under-19 level. After playing for City's Elite Development Squad he was sent out on loan to Fulham and Bastia, making a good impression in both stints. With a year left on his contract and first-team prospects looking slim, Fofana continues his career in Italy.

Espanyol 22.6.16
Roberto joins Espanyol

Espanyol have signed Olympiacos goalkeeper Roberto on a three-year deal. The 30-year-old, who began his career at Atletico Madrid and played under coach Quique Sanchez Flores at the Vicente Calderon, was signed by the Greek side in 2014 after impressing during an initial loan spell. Roberto made 28 Super League appearances as Olympiacos won a sixth straight top-flight title last season.

Monaco 22.6.16

Roma 22.6.16
Roma sign Nigerian duo

Roma have signed Sadiq Umar and Abdullahi Nura from Serie B side Spezia for a combined fee of €5 million. Both players have signed four-year contracts at Stadio Olimpico after impressing while on loan at the club in 2015-16. The permanent acquisition of 19-year-old Sadiq will boost Luciano Spalletti's attacking options - the tall striker scored two goals in six Serie A appearances for Roma last season. Nura's preferred position is right-back, and the 18-year-old made 11 appearances in Roma's Primavera youth side in 2015-16, scoring three goals.

Real Mad. 21.6.16

The fee for Morata has not been announced but reports in Spain suggest it is in the region of 30million euros. It remains to be seen if Morata will remain with the Champions League winners for next season or if he will be sold on for a profit, with a number of English clubs said to be interested.
