Southampton have come out to announce their newest addition to the squad after completing the move of Dusan Tadic from FC Twente, talkSPORTS reports.
With the club having lost Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert to Liverpool along with Luke Shaw to Manchester United, the Saints are trying to keep hold of Dejan Lovren, who is also heavily linked with a switch to Anfield.
Ronald Koeman will surely be given quite a bit of the transfer profits and could be looking to rebuild a new squad capable of replicating last season’s performance.
Playing from his usual left midfield position, Tadic has scored 16 and provided another 14 for the Eredivisie side and has expressed his delight at making the switch to St Mary’s Stadium.
Tadic said: “It is a really nice feeling, this is a really nice club of which I have heard a lot of good things about. I have already seen the beautiful training centre and there are lots of nice people that work here including the coaches, so I am really happy to be here.
And the midfielder, who has agreed a four-year deal at St Mary’s, is confident he has joined a club going places under Koeman, who impressed while in charge of Feyenoord in the Eredivisie.
“I watched a lot of the games last season and saw that the club plays really nice football which will suit me because I like to play in the same way,” he added.
