Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu will wear the number 22 shirt for Southampton this season, the club announced on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old has been included in 23-man squad registered for the season which gets underway in September.
Salisu signed for the Premier League club on a four-year deal after an impressive debut season in Spanish top-flight with Real Valladolid.
He started 30 of Valladolid’s 38 La Liga matches last season.
Due to his impressive performances, he attracted interest from a number of clubs including Manchester United.
But Southampton was able to convince the highly-rated defender to join them.
Salisu is yet to be capped by Ghana. He missed out on his debut Black Stars call-up last year November due to injury.
