Southampton have sealed an ‘impressive’ signing with ‘major quality’ in Croatia international Duje Caleta-Car, says journalist Dean Jones.
The Lowdown: Saints’ summer to remember…
The Premier League side completed an array of deals for some top talents from up and down the country over the latest summer window.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has been backed by new owners Sport Republic with their transfer policy indicating they’re prioritising players with the highest range of potential and ceiling to improve.
The Saints didn’t sign a single player over the age of 25 as a plethora of young and exciting footballers make their way to St. Mary’s Stadium, including the likes of Romeo Lavia and Gavin Bazunu from Man City.
The Latest: Jones thrilled by ‘impressive’ Caleta-Car move…
Speaking to GiveMeSport, reporter Jones has been left thrilled by Southampton’s capture of Caleta-Car – going on to claim it’s an ‘impressive’ signing by the club.
“West Ham would have been expecting Saints to secure Caleta-Car as they discovered he was a long way down the road in negotiating with them. This is a player of major quality and is an impressive signing.”
The Verdict: Big…
The central defender carries real experience playing top level football both internationally and at club level.
Indeed, Caleta-Car has made appearances across Europe in the Champions League, Europa League and Conference League with the player also having both World Cup and European Championship minutes under his belt for Croatia (Transfermarkt).
Standing at a colossal 6 foot 3, his physicality is also arguably tailor-made for the English top flight with this signing seriously ticking a lot of boxes.
