Ex-Southampton captain Fonte returning to Europe

Former Southampton and West Ham defender Jose Fonte is returning to Europe.

Fonte is on the verge of joining French side Lille.

The Portuguese defender has agreed a two-year contract but is still undergoing a medical.

Former Southampton and West Ham defender Fonte tore up his contract with Chinese club Dalian Yifang earlier this year.

“I'm very proud to join Lille, which is a great French club," Fonte said. “It's a new challenge for me, hopefully it will be successful."
