Mario Lemina has expressed his delight at completing his move from Juventus to Southampton.

 The 23-year-old has become a club record signing, having today agreed terms on a five-year contract at Staplewood Campus. 

 “I am really happy to have signed for Southampton,” started Lemina.

“I think that it was the project that attracted me the most and the one my family was really behind. Therefore, I’m really happy to be here. 

“As I’ve already said, it was a club that really interested me from the start. I’ve also been aware of their journey in the Europa League and their style of play with plenty of ball possession. So, I’m really happy to have chosen this project.”
