Southampton have confirmed the signing of Croatian World Cup star Mislav Orsic from Dinamo Zagreb on a two-and-a-half-year deal.


The 30-year-old was an integral part of the Croatia side which finished third in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, scoring in the third-place play-off win over Morocco.

Speaking about the signing in a press release, new Saints manager Nathan Jones expressed his joy at making the signing early in the month: “Mislav is a significant addition to our squad and I’m delighted we have been able to get him in so quickly this month.

“He’s a serious attacking threat and I’m sure anyone who has followed his progress or saw what he achieved at the World Cup will realise the talent he has. We’re excited to have him here.”

Orsic also stated his delight at moving to St. Mary’s, saying that it’s a dream to play in the Premier League: “I feel very happy to be here, I think it’s a dream for every football player to come to play in the Premier League and I’m here, I’m ready, I’m motivated and I hope that I will help the team to achieve their goals.

“When I come here to the camp, it’s amazing, and I’m sure I will really enjoy my time here. Now it’s a little bit of a difficult situation for the club, but I think we need to stay together. We have only one plan – everybody to stay in the Premier League. We need to work hard every day and I hope that at the end of the year we will be happy.”
