Two in, one out, in a busy week at St Mary's

Southampton have completed the £10.9million signing of Mohammed Salisu from Real Valladolid on a four-year deal.

Ralph Hasenhuttl has hailed 21-year-old Salisu as a defender of rich promise. He’s become the club’s second summer arrival and could well line up alongside the first after Kyle Walker-Peters made the permanent switch from Tottenham after impressing in his loan period.

The move was funded in part by the sale of former club captain and midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to Tottenham for £20m.

Salisu moved to Valladolid from Ghana in 2017, quickly establishing himself as a first-team regular. Now Saints boss Hasenhuttl expects him to do the same and shine in the Premier League.
Salisu revealed Southampton’s track record of developing young players informed his decision to join the club.
