Premier League new boys Southampton have completed the signing of Bologna winger Gaston Ramirez, the BBC
Southampton’s official website added that the deal to sign Ramirez was completed more than a week ago bar a few small details, while the club also had to wait for a work permit to be granted to the Uruguayan international. Southampton also claim they fought off competition from around Europe for the player’s signature.
The 21-year-old moves to the St Mary’s Stadium for an undisclosed fee on a four-year contract. Ramirez had been with the Serie A side for two years, making nearly 60 appearances for the club following a move from Penarol.
Southampton were promoted from the Championship last season as runners-up behind Reading but have made a slow start to life in the top flight, losing 3-2 to champions Manchester City in their opening match and then suffering a 2-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic in their inaugural home game.
