Mohammed Salisu has started his Southampton career after training at the club’s Staplewood Campus for the first time since his move from Real Valladolid.
The Saints this last month completed the signing of 21-year-old centre-back Mohammed Salisu on a four-year deal from Real Valladolid.
The Ghanaian defender joined Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side in a deal reported to be £10.9million and he has joined his teammates at training as they prepare for the commencement of the 2020/21 Premier League season.
Southampton who closed the 2019/20 season unbeaten in seven PL games (W4, D3) will begin the 2020/21campaign with an away game against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday, September 13 at 200.
Salisu who will wear the number 22 shirt will be hoping to feature in the game.
Meanwhile, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl lauded the qualities of the Ghanaian defender adding that he fits the club’s profile.
“This is an important signing for us. Mohammed is a player who fits our profile well. He is young and has a great amount of potential, but he is also someone who has the qualities to come in and help the team as soon as he is up to speed with our way of playing.
“I like what I have seen of him so far in his games with Valladolid. He is strong defensively, he is calm with the ball – something that is important in our team – and he has good speed too.
“I think he will fit in well with us and that this will be a good place for him to develop his game further. We have some good centre-backs here and this will be another strong option for us.”
