The signing of Ghanaian attacker Kamaldeen Sulemana by Southampton before the UK transfer window closed has thrilled manager Nathan Jones.
The Saints managed to hire the skilled Black Stars adolescent on Tuesday after a last-minute scramble.
Nathan Jones, manager of Southampton, said he has no doubt the new player would have an instant positive impact on the club.
“This is another really positive addition for us this month. We’ve obviously been keen to add a little more potency to the side, and Kamaldeen is someone who does that for us.
“He’s at a stage in his career where we feel he can help us in the immediate term, but also continue to grow and develop further into the future,” the Southampton manager said.
To announce the signing, Southampton in an official statement said, “Southampton Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of forward Kamaldeen Sulemana from Rennes, subject to a work permit and international clearance.”
