RYAN SEAGER has re-joined Yeovil Town on free transfer from Premier League side Southampton.

The Yeovil-born striker has signed an 18-month contract at Huish Park to become a permanent Glovers player until at least June 2020, subject to EFL approval.

Seager spent the second half of last season on loan at his hometown club and made seven appearances for the Glovers, scoring once, before returning to Southampton.

The 22-year-old has also had loan spells with Crewe Alexandra, MK Dons and this season Dutch second division side SC Telstar.

Yeovil manager Darren Way said: “The opportunity to bring a player born and bred in Yeovil to the club on a permanent basis, couldn’t be missed.

“We know Ryan from his time with us last season but from seeing him in training we’re dealing with a different mindset this time around.

“I’m excited to be working with Seags once again and look forward to seeing what lies ahead.”
