Southampton sign Croatian international Dejan Lovren

Southampton have completed the signing of Croatian international Dejan Lovren from French outfit Lyon, according to Sky Sports.

Lovren, who has 17 caps for Croatia, has signed a four year contract at St. Mary’s. The transfer fee was undisclosed, but was estimated at around £8.5m.

The 23-year-old admitted that playing in the Premier League is a dream he had been harbouring for some time, and was quick to display his elation at that dream having been fulfilled.

He said: “I’ve spoken a lot with the chairman and the coach, and this is a great project. They told me a lot of positive things, and I know the history of the club. It’s a big club and I’m very happy that I can be a part of it.

“After three-and-a-half years in France, it was a dream to play in the Premier League. Now the dream has come true. I have it in my mind to do something big, and I see the same thing in the club.

“We are a young team, and I am a young player also so I hope I will stay here for a long time.”
