Southampton have confirmed the signing of Croatian World Cup star Mislav Orsic from Dinamo Zagreb for two and a half years.
The 30-year-old was an integral part of the Croatia side that finished third at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and scored in the third-place play-off win over Morocco.
New Saints manager Nathan Jones expressed his delight at the signing in a press release earlier this month: “Mislav is a significant addition to our squad and I’m delighted we’ve been able to sign him so quickly this month.
“He’s a serious offensive threat and I’m sure anyone who has followed his progress or seen what he achieved at the World Cup will recognize his talent. We are happy to have him here.”
Orsic also expressed his delight at moving to St Mary’s, saying it is a dream to play in the Premier League: “I feel very lucky to be here, I think it’s a dream for any footballer, playing in the Premier League and I’m here, I’m ready, I’m motivated and I hope to help the team achieve their goals.
“Coming here to the camp is fantastic and I’m sure I’ll really enjoy my time here. It’s a bit of a difficult situation for the club now, but I think we have to stick together. We only have one plan – everyone is to stay in the Premier League. We have to work hard every day and I hope that at the end of the year we will be happy.”
