Southampton have announced the signing of Nice goalkeeper Mouez Hassen on loan until the end of the season.
Mouez Hassen will link back up with Saints boss Claude Puel, with the two having worked together previously at Nice.
The new signing said: “I am really happy. It’s a pleasure for me to come to England for the first time and I am really happy to get to know the Premier League.
“I am really looking forward to joining the team.”
Executive director of football Les Reed added: “Mouez is a promising young goalkeeper, and we are very pleased to have been able to bring him to Southampton.
“He has built an excellent reputation during his time with Nice and also in his country’s youth teams, and will provide us with further depth in the months ahead.
“As well as adding to our squad, we believe Mouez can continue his development in his time at Southampton and make strides in his own game under the expert guidance of our Head of Goalkeeping, Dave Watson, as well as working alongside Fraser Forster.
“Harry Lewis has had opportunities and gained great experience while Alex McCarthy has been injured, and Stuart Taylor has brought excellent experience to the group and now Mouez will add to our strength in depth.”
