Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic is hoping that he can help his new club to build a bright future, despite losing a number of key players this summer.
The South Coast club have been forced to allow the likes of captain Adam Lallana, striker Rickie Lambert and youngster Luke Shaw depart since the end of last term.
After impressing under former boss Mauricio Pochettino the Saints were unable to prevent bigger clubs coming in to poach their prized assets.
However, with Ronald Koeman now at the helm following Pochettino’s move to Tottenham, Tadic believes the club can write a new chapter in its history.
Tadic has officially complete his move for a fee believed to be in excess of £8million from FC Twente and hopes that the club will be able to continue spending wisely to ensure they can try and mount a challenge for Europe.
Tadic said: “I see this as a new step for me, so I want to show myself and to help the club.
“I heard the club has a history, and I watched them last year and they played really good football, which is important because I am a football player and I like to play football.
“England has one of the best leagues in the world. English football is really good to watch, and it’s going to be a pleasure to play here.
“I hope me and Southampton are going to have a good future.”
