• OFFICIAL: Southampton sign Pierre-Emile Højbjerg

    Saints have signed the former Bayern Munich starlet to a five-year contract.

    Southampton have completed the signing of Pierre-Emile Højbjerg from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

    Højbjerg, 20, joins Saints on a five-year contract having decided to leave the German giants due to a lack of regular first team starts.

    Estimates in terms of the transfer fee paid by Saints to Bayern Munich are largely in the region of €15m (£12.8m).

    The Danish midfielder - who has 15 senior caps already - represented Bayern on 25 occasions as well as featuring in loan spells with fellow Bundesliga outfits Augsburg and Schalke.

    Højbjerg is a highly-rated young talent, recognised by Pep Guardiola as one of the most exciting upcoming stars, well-regarded for his technical ability, work rate and professional approach.

    The 20-year-old is Claude Puel's first signing as Saints boss, and follows Nathan Redmond in signing for the club this summer.
