Southampton transfer news: Completed summer deals, including Shane Long, Fraser Forster and Graziano Pelle

A look at the players who have arrived at St Mary's this summer and those who have departed

Southampton impressed last season with their free-flowing, attacking football taking them to an eighth placed finish.

The Saints have been victims of their own success though and have lost several of their best players from last year. They will need to rebuild and regroup quickly or they could be in trouble in the season ahead.

COMPLETED TRANSFERS

Dusan Tadic - £10.3m from Twente

In Southampton's rebulding job, they have signed attacking midfielder Tadic. The 25-year-old scored 16 goals in 33 league games last season for Twente, as the Dutch side finished third behind Ajax and Feyenoord.

Graziano Pelle - £8m from Feyenoord

The 28-year-old striker has been reunited with manager Ronald Koeman. The Italian played under Koeman at Feyenoord and now the two will try to help the Saints build on their success of last season. He netted 23 times in the Eredivisie last term.

Ryan Bertrand - Season-long loan from Chelsea

The left-back joined from Chelsea on a season-long loan. It is the seventh different loan spell of his career.

Fraser Forster - £10m from Celtic

Having impressed north of the border for some time, Forster finally returned to the Premier League. The former Newcastle player was a part of the England squad that went to the World Cup.

Florin Gardos - £6m from FC Steaua Bucuresti

Gardos arrived on a four-year deal with the centre-back lined up as the replacement for Dejan Lovren. The Romania international arrived with 12 caps for his country.

Shane Long - £12m from Hull City

Having only switched to Hull in January for around £7m, the Tigers were unable to resist a quick £5m profit. During his time at the KC Stadium the Republic of Ireland international managed just four goals. Long signed a four-year deal.

Saphir Taider - Loan from Inter Milan

Taider arrived from Inter Milan as part of the deal that saw Dani Osvaldo go the other way. The 22-year-old midfielder made 25 Serie A appearances last term and went to the World Cup with Algeria.
