Southampton has confirmed the signing of Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu on a four-year deal, the club announced on Wednesday.
The Saints have completed the signing of the Ghanaian centre-back from Spanish side Real Valldolid.
The English side triggered a buyout clause in the 21-year-old’s contract and he has signed a four-year deal to move to St Mary’s.
Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has been a huge admirer for the talented, who has been one of the centre-back target of the club this summer.
One of the most highly-regarded young centre backs playing in Europe right now, Salisu moved to Spanish top-flight side Valladolid from his homeland in 2017, first establishing himself in their second side, before quickly progressing into a key member of the first-team.
Salisu featured twice in the club’s Copa del Rey campaign in the 2018/19 season before becoming a regular in the 2019/20 campaign, making 32 appearances across all competitions, helping them to a notable improvement in their defensive record and also to a respectable 13th-placed finish.
