Rickie Lambert is of the belief that Dejan Lovren will add plenty of strength to Southamptonâ€™s defensive stocks.
The Croatian centre-half recently joined the Saints from Lyon for Â£8.5million and St Maryâ€™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."
