Saints wrap up Yoshida deal

Southampton have completed the signing of Japan defender Maya Yoshida from Dutch side VVV-Venlo.

Yoshida, who captained his country at the London Olympics, has signed a three-year contract and joins the South Coast club for an undisclosed fee that is believed to be in the region of £2 million.

The defender has already been granted a work permit by the Home Office and told the club's website: ''I am very grateful to be able to become a Saint and I will do my best for the team and for the supporters.

''To come to the Premier League was one of my biggest dreams since I was a child.''

Saint boss Nigel Adkins - who had completely dismissed the prospect of landing the 24-year-old following the weekend's 2-0 home defeat to Wigan - said: ''We are delighted to bring in Maya to the club.

''He is a centre-half who is comfortable on both the right and left-hand side as he is good with both feet and has a good physical presence about himself. We are really looking forward to working with him here at Southampton.''

Yoshida has made 17 appearances for Japan and will compete for a place at the heart of the back four after the Saints began their return to the top flight after a seven-year absence with back-to-back defeats.
