Lambert thrilled to join forces with Southampton new boy Lovren

Rickie Lambert is of the belief that Dejan Lovren will add plenty of strength to Southampton’s defensive stocks.

The Croatian centre-half recently joined the Saints from Lyon for £8.5million and St Mary’s star forward Lambert has welcomed the exciting addition.

"I didn't know too much about him but I've read up on him and he will be a very, very good addition to the squad," Lambert told the club's official website.

"I haven't met him yet but I can't wait. Hopefully he'll help push us on."

23-year old Lovren, who started his career with Dinamo Zagreb, made over 70 French Ligue 1 appearances for Lyon during his stay and has also represented Croatia on 17 occasions.
