Southampton sign Aribo from Rangers

Southampton have completed the signing of forward Joe Aribo from Rangers on a four-year deal.

The 25-year-old Nigeria international moves to St. Mary's after three successful seasons at Ibrox, where he scored 26 goals in 149 appearances and won the Scottish Premiership and Scottish Cup.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl said: "Joe is a player with many qualities to his game, and we are very excited to welcome him to the squad in time for the pre-season trip to Austria.

    "We believe Joe can bring energy and creativity to our side. Feeling comfortable in so many different positions is very helpful for a manager and shows he has a high level of football intelligence, with the ability to take on new information quickly.

    "He has played a lot of games already in his career, at a very high level, and his performances in the Europa League prove he has the quality to play in the Premier League. This is a big ambition for him, and he is hungry to show everybody he can do it."
