Southampton have announced an agreement to sign winger Moussa Djenepo from Standard Liege.
The Mali international, 20, has agreed a four-year contract with the Premier League club, subject to the relevant paperwork being completed on July 1.
Djenepo scored 11 times for Standard Liege last season, helping them finish third in the Belgium top flight and qualify for the Europa League.
“We are very happy to welcome Moussa as the first new player to join our team ahead of the upcoming season,” manager Ralph Hasenhuttl said following the announcement.
Please welcome our newest Saint, @MoussaDjenepo2! 🇲🇱😇

“He is an exciting player, with tremendous pace and good finishing abilities, who we have watched closely for some time.”
Djenepo will link up with his new team-mates for pre-season after representing Mali at this summer’s Africa Cup of Nations.
