Southampton announced on Friday that they had completed the signing of Jasper Vestergaard from Borussia Monchengladbach on a four-year contract.
The Saints have been linked with a move for the central defender for some time, and it is understood that they have beaten a number of clubs to the 25-year-old’s signature.
Vestergaard has followed Stuart Armstrong, Mohamed Elyounoussi and Angus Gunn in making the move to St Mary’s ahead of the new Premier League campaign.
The Southampton fans were delighted with the arrival of Armstrong, and have now been commenting on Vestergaard’s move to St Mary’s.
It would be fair to say that it is a real coup for the Premier League outfit, and it is not a surprise that the Saints fans are so pleased with the club’s latest addition.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
For my birthday last year they gave me a Stuart Taylor contract extension, this year they give me Vestergaard. I love my club. ??⚪️
