Southampton have signed Papa Waigo on a season long loan from Fiorentina.

The Senegalese international arrives from the Seria A and feels like he has a point to prove: ‘I am excited to be coming to England and I’m looking forward to showing the Southampton fans what I can do.’ He told the official website.

The 25-year-old has spent his whole career in Italy, starting at Verona in 2002.

The fast striker will strengthen the Saints attack, and Saints boss Alan Pardew feels Waigo can bring a lot to the side: ‘We wanted another creative player and he comes highly recommended.

‘He’s a quick, creative forward player who will help us score more goals and I can’t wait to see him in a Saints shirt.’

  • Another good signing! He’s fast and talented, and I reckon he’ll do well in L1. Hopefully this gives Saga a kick up the backside and now we have hungry strikers wanting to play for us.

  • I’m glad that we are strengthening the squad. Clearly it isn’t good enough! Bringing in Waigo and Jaidi are two good, strong players and will definitely make us a stronger outfit.

  • Delighted with this signing, Waigo, Lambo, Pato and Saga should give us enough goals to get us going in the right direction. COYR
