Southampton sign Celtic's Hooiveld permanently

Championship club Southampton have signed Jos Hooiveld from Celtic on a permanent basis.

The 28-year old Dutch defender joined the Saints on loan in August but has impressed so much in 14 league appearances for the tier two league leaders that they decided to offer him an enduring contract.

Hooiveld's loan was set to expire in January but Southampton have reportedly stumped up close to £2million to keep him at St Mary's Stadium for the next three-and-a-half years.
