Tadic Signs Four Year Deal

Tadic Signs Four Year Deal

FC Twente attacking midfielder Dusan Tadic has today signed a four year deal with Southampton and becomes new manager Ronald Koeman's first signing of the summer.

The 25 year old Serbian playmaker joins us for an undisclosed fee and he ended last season in the Eredivisie topping the assists table as he created 14 goals for his colleagues, whilst also scoring 16 goals which left him fourth in the goal table.

He has already gained 25 caps for his country.

Speaking to saintsfc following the release of the news of his arrival, Tadic said.

'It's a really nice feeling to sign. This is a really nice club of which I have heard a lot of good things. I have already seen the beautiful training centre and there are lots of nice people that work here including the coaches so I am really happy to be here.'

Tadic goes on to say that he saw a lot of Southampton's matches last season and he feels that the way we play will suit his style, and obviously Koeman knows him pretty well from the Dutch league so when our gaffer called him and explained the role he wanted him to play, it was a pretty simple decision from his point of view.

'I know the manager well because he is one of the biggest Dutch legends in football. He's a really good coach and you can always expect his teams to play well because he is leading them and because he is so good tactically. I am really excited to start playing for the club.'

Koeman himself said that he felt it was very important to get this deal over the line, not only for him but also for the team and the fans to see the type and quality of player he will be looking to recruit now he's in our hotseat.

'We've lost some good players but we want to continue the ambition and philosophy of the club, so it's a great signal to have brought in our first player. He's a great player, I know him very well from Holland, where he had a great season last year. We now look forward to bringing in more players because we want to continue and maybe even better what Southampton did last season.'
