Salisu passes Southampton medical as buyout clause met

Southampton are meeting the buyout clause of Real Valladolid defender Mohammed Salisu.

The young Ghanaian has agreed to move to St Mary's despite a rival offer from Rennes, which will compete in next season's Champions League.

Saints have now moved to meet the €12m buyout clause in Salisu's contract to take him to the south coast.

Salisu was in Valladolid on Saturday, but has already undergone a medical examination and will sign a four-year contract.

Saints could announce the deal before the end of the day.
