LONDON (AP) - Southampton signed Netherlands goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg on loan, while West Bromwich Albion bought and released midfielders on Monday as Premier League clubs shaped their squads ahead of the 2015-16 campaign.

The 32-year-old Stekelenburg moved to Ronald Koeman’s side from second-tier Fulham as cover for England international Fraser Forster, who is out with a serious knee injury and might not return until March.

Stekelenburg, capped 54 times by the Dutch, spent last season on loan at Monaco following Fulham’s relegation from the Premier League.

West Bromwich signed Ireland winger James McClean from third-tier Wigan for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal, while central midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu agreed to join newly promoted Norwich when his contract at West Brom expires on July 1.

Aston Villa midfielder Yacouba Sylla has joined French side Rennes.
