Premier League outfit, Southampton, have secured the signature of Joe Aribo in a £10million switch from Rangers.

The Nigerian international joined Saints on a four-year contract.

He arrives at Southampton after three years in Scotland, during which time he played 149 times for the Gers, scoring 26 goals. That included netting in the Europa League final for Rangers against Eintracht Frankfurt in May.

He scored nine goals and recorded 10 assists from 57 games in all competitions for Rangers last season.

Aribo had been a long-term target for Southampton, having been linked with a move to Saints prior to his decision to join Rangers from Charlton Athletic in the summer of 2019. He was also linked with Arsenal, Aston Villa and Manchester City at the time, but opted to join Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.

In an interview published on the official Southampton website, he explained his expectations for the season.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world. I’ve been watching it since I was a young boy, it’s always been a goal for me to play here and show what I can do on this stage.”

“It’s an amazing feeling, a dream come true. This is where I’ve wanted to be since I was a child growing up playing, so to say that I’m here now is really exciting,” he said.
