Southampton confirm signing of Sofiane Boufal

Southampton have confirmed the signing of Lille winger Sofiane Boufal with the fee reported to be a club-record £16m.

The Saints agreed a fee last week for the Lille forward, which it is thought to have topped the £15m they paid for Dani Osvaldo in October 2013.

Boufal passed a medical with the club on Monday.

After signing a five-year contract, the 22-year-old Moroccan international said: “I’m very happy and really excited to play in St Mary’s Stadium in front of the fans.

I hope I can achieve many great things with Southampton. It is a very good club, with excellent facilities, and I feel it is the perfect environment to continue my development.”

Southampton’s executive director of football Les Reed said: “I’m absolutely delighted. He has shown his undoubted qualities in France over the past few seasons, and we are extremely confident he will successfully adapt to life in the Premier League
