Southampton have completed a deal to sign centre-back Mohammed Salisu from Real Valladolid for £10.9m.
Saints triggered a buyout clause in the 21-year-old’s contract and he has agreed a four-year deal to move to St Mary’s.
As it stands, the Ghanaian will have to undergo a 14-day quarantine period once he arrives in the UK from Spain due to coronavirus control measures.
Sky Sports News reported last month that Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl had resurrected his interest in Salisu, who was one of two centre-back targets they were looking at in Jaunary.
Saints will not look to sign another centre-back unless they sell one this summer. Jannik Vestergaard was a target for Leicester in the January window.
