Southampton have welcomed Wolves' capture of Anderlecht defender Jelle van Damme.

Southampton have welcomed Wolves' capture of Anderlecht defender Jelle van Damme.

The Daily Echo says Wolves have signed the left-back from Anderlecht for a fee believed to be about 3m euros.

Saints are understood to be owed between 10 and 15 per cent of the money, due to a sell-on clause inserted by former chairman Rupert Lowe following van Damme’s departure from St Mary’s in 2005.

That means they are expected to receive somewhere around £300,000 as a result of the 26-year-old’s transfer.
