Chelsea have a agreed to sell Oriol Romeu to Southampton and the player is undergoing a medical today, according to the Independent.

The 23-year-old is a product of Barcelona's famed youth academy La Masia and featured 45 times for their 'B' team before joining Chelsea in 2011. The defensive midfielder only managed 22 appearances for Chelsea before being loaned out to Valencia and Stuttgart respectively.

Southampton are getting a combative midfielder who can also pass the ball very well, as is the pre-requisite with La Masia products. The deal is a permanent one and looks good business on paper.
