According to The Mirror, Southampton are looking set to sign Laurent Jans and become the first Premier League side to boast a player from Luxembourg with our resident Saints fans here in the Transfer Tavern hoping he provides a positive element of surprise.
The St. Mary’s outfit are reportedly offering £1 million to sign the defender who currently plays his football in Belgium.
The right-back has impressed this season for his team Waasland-Beveren and would provide extra cover for a position in which Southampton have struggled this season.
Both Cedric Soares and Jeremy Pied have had injuries to deal with, leaving the Saints with just Cuco Martina for that position and so manager Claude Puel clearly feels Jans may be able to help them out.
There is competition for his signature, though.
Our landlord admits he doesn’t know too much about Jans, and thinks that the club could potentially be about to seal a deal for a hidden gem!
Would you take him Saints fans? Let us know below…..
