BREAKING: Ghanaian youngster Kevin Danso joins Southampton

Southampton have completed the signing of Austria international centre-back Kevin Danso on a season-long loan from FC Augsburg, with an option to buy.

The English Premier League side sealed the deal for the 20-year-old just before Thursday's 5pm transfer deadline and the Austrian has now secured international clearance.
 
Danso will not link up with his teammates until after Saturday's Premier League opening game at Burnley, but will train with the squad as they build-up to their first home game against Liverpool on August 17.
 
The defender, who was born to Ghanaian parents in Austria, moved to England when he was six and came through the academy system at MK Dons, before moving to Augsburg in 2014.
 
Danso told the club's website: "I'm delighted to join a club that has produced a lot of great players. I'm ready for the challenge and really excited to get started, and also to get to know the fans and the rest of the lads too.
 
Danso was eligible to represent England, Ghana, or Austria but opted to play for Austria and has capped six times since 2017.
 
"I'm looking forward to working with such a great coach in Ralph Hasenhuttl as well.
 
"He has produced a lot of young players and showed a huge amount of belief in them, so I hope I can be another one who can benefit from him.
 
"It's a great opportunity for me to show what I can do. Southampton is a great club, the manager is a great coach, and I'm really looking forward to the opportunity."
