Leverkusen agree £18m deal with Southampton for Tella

Bayer Leverkusen have agreed a deal with Southampton for winger Nathan Tella, according to Sky in Germany.

Tella is expected to arrive in Germany this weekend for a medical ahead of a move to the Bundesliga club for an initial fee of around £18m (€20m).

The 24-year-old would replace Moussa Diaby in the Leverkusen squad after his move to Aston Villa earlier this summer.

Tella has been with Southampton since 2017 but spent last season on loan at Burnley and starred as they secured a return to the Premier League.

He has featured in all three of Southampton’s Sky Bet Championship games this season and scored in the 2-1 win over Plymouth last weekend.
