• OFFICIAL: Jérémy Pied join Saints




    Free agent Jérémy Pied has joined Saints and will play under Claude Puel for a third time.


    Jérémy Pied has become Southampton's fourth signing of the summer, becoming the second new arrival today after the earlier signing of Alex McCarthy.

    Pied, 27, links up with Claude Puel for the third time in his career, having previously been managed by the Saints boss at both Olympique Lyonnais and OGC Nice.

    After starting out as a forward player, Puel converted his fellow Frenchman into an attacking full-back, suiting the diamond formation he employed during his spell in charge of Nice.

    Pied has signed a two-year deal with Saints.


    Executive Director of Football Les Reed said:

    "The signing of Jérémy confirms the commitment of Southampton to succeed again in the Premier League and Europa League, as well as go for a run in the cup competitions.

    "We already have a top quality right-back in Cédric, whose achievements with Portugal in the summer were outstanding. While Jérémy will provide excellent competition, he is also a versatile defender and again will be pushing Cédric, Cuco [Martina] and the other current defensive incumbents hard.

    "The squad is training very well and there is real competition all-round, which is only right for an ambitious team. They will all be called upon this year to contribute to our pursuit for success, and Jérémy will only add to that.

    "I hope everyone will join me in welcoming Jérémy to the south coast as we look forward to another fantastic season."

    Didn't like him as our manager. Certainly his career not gone the way a lot thought it would.
