Southampton claim Taider in Osvaldo swap deal

Southampton have signed Inter midfielder Saphir Taider on a season-long loan in a deal which has seen striker Pablo Osvaldo move the other way on the same terms, reports the Guardian.

The Algerian, who played in two of his country’s matches at the World Cup as they lost to eventual winners Germany after extra time in the second round, becomes Southampton’s fourth signing of the summer. Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand has also arrived on loan, while they secured permanent deals for Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pelle.


Despite only being signed last summer in a club record £15m transfer, Osvaldo is unlikely to play for the Saints again after a series of disciplinary issues since his move to the South coast, including a training ground brawl with teammate Jose Fonte. He spent the end of last season on loan at Juventus but struggled for playing time.


Upon signing Taider for the upcoming season, Saints boss Ronald Koeman said: “It’s part of our philosophy to bring in talented young players who like to learn and develop themselves, and that’s true of Saphir.”


“He can play as a controlling midfielder, but he can also move up around the box and up front.That’s a good thing for a coach or manager because it brings more possibilities to the players in the team. He brings competition to the squad. He can still learn some things, so we will train him and develop him this season. Over the course of the year, we will then make a decision about the future of the player.”
