Southampton fans react on Twitter to Artur Boruc's departure

St Marys Southampton

Artur Boruc has departed Southampton to sign for Bournemouth.

Southampton fans have been left largely disappointed by the club's decision to allow Artur Boruc's contract to expire.

Southampton opted not to offer Boruc a new deal at St. Mary's, allowing the Polish goalkeeper to sign for newly-promoted Bournemouth. 

Boruc had been on loan at Bournemouth last season and impressed in the Cherries goal, providing them with a strong foundation upon which to build a side destined for the Premier League.

His loan spell showed the class that he still has and many Southampton fans are disappointed to see him depart.

Although Boruc was never likely to be Southampton's first choice any time soon, he would have provided depth in a position where they have lacked cover.

The Saints have struggled to replace Fraser Forster since he got injured - with Paulo Gazzaniga and Kelvin Davis both looking out of their depth when called upon.

Boruc, though, would have provided sufficient back-up in the minds of most Southampton fans, had he been given the chance to stay.

As it is, he will be hoping to continue to impress at Bournemouth, and most Southampton supporters have wished him well.

Here is the best reaction from Saints fans on social media site Twitter to Boruc's departure.
