'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Gardos Completes Move

Southampton have confirmed the signing of Romania defender Florin Gardos from Steaua Bucharest.

The 25 year old centre half joins us as a direct replacement for for a nugget and has signed a deal which will keep him with us until the summer of 2018.

He is our seventh signing of the season and has 12 caps for his country already.

Speaking to saintsfc manager Ronald Koeman explained.

'I'm very happy to have Florin here. He's still a young player so he can develop himself a lot more, and that's part of the ambition of Southampton. From the beginning, we paid a lot of attention to Florin.'

Koeman goes on to say that everybody knows the big names but the secret often in football is to find the unknown gem, but the club had great information about him and he feels we have signed a 'good' defender for the now and the future.

Gardos himself said.

'Coming to the Premier League is a very big occasion for me, and Southampton was a team that had a really good least season so this wasn't really a hard decision.'
