Real Valladolid defender Mohammed Salisu is soon to be a Southampton player, claim reports.

Diario de Valladolid, a Spanish news outlet covering the La Liga club, say that Salisu is ‘already a Southampton player’ with Saints having triggered his €12m release clause.

This is yet to be confirmed at St Mary’s – however, due to Covid-19, any arrivals in to the UK from Spain must currently self-isolate for a 14-day period upon touching down in the country, perhaps delaying any such announcement.

The 21-year-old centre back stands at an imposing 6’3”, with newspaper The Guardian claiming Salisu has already passed his Saints medical – and if you needed any further convincing that he will be joining Southampton, one of Salisu’s family members went as far as to confirm it on Ghanaian radio at the weekend.
