Southampton have signed FC Twente midfielder Dusan Tadic.

The Daily Star says Saints boss Ronald Koeman has made Tadic his first signing in a £10m deal.

The Serbian, 25, has put pen to paper on a four-year deal at St Mary's and will fill the void left by former captain and new Liverpool star Adam Lallana.

Tadic caught the eye of Koeman in the Eredivisie last season as he bagged 16 goals for third-place finishers Twente.

Tadic revealed Holland legend Koeman convinced him to sign, he said: "The manager obviously knows me from the Dutch league so when he called me and told me his plan it was an easy decision to make.

"I know the manager well because he is one of the biggest Dutch legends in football, everyone knows him."
