Southampton have announced an agreement to sign winger Moussa Djenepo from Standard Liege.

The Mali international has agreed a four-year contract with the Premier League club, subject to the relevant paperwork being completed on July 1, with a fee of £14m mentioned previously.

Djenepo scored 11 times for Standard Liege last season, helping them finish third in the Belgium top flight and qualify for the Europa League.

AC Milan were also linked with a move for the 20-year-old by the Belgian press, and he fits the profile of signings Ralph Hasenhuttl wants to make after he said he wants young, hungry players who want to further their career.

Djenepo started his career at Yeelen Olympique in his home country before signing, initially on loan, for the Belgian outfit in 2017. He impressed that much that Liege activated his €50,000 release clause and he has continued his good from since.
