Croatian winger Orsic has been signed by Southampton

Southampton on Friday signed Croatian winger Mislav Orsic from struggling Premier League club Dinamo Zagreb.

British media reported that Southampton, 20th in the Premier League standings, paid around £8 million ($9.66 million) for the 30-year-old, who has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Orsic has 27 caps for Croatia and scored in a 2-1 win over Morocco in the World Cup third-place playoff match in Qatar last month.

Southampton manager Nathan Jones said, “Mislav is an important addition to our squad and I am delighted that we have been able to acquire him so early this month.”

“He is a serious attacking threat and I’m sure anyone who has followed his progress or what he has achieved at the World Cup will get a sense of his talent. We are excited to have him here.”
