The 25-year-old joins the Saints for an undisclosed fee, reported to be in excess of £8million, and becomes the first player brought in by new manager Ronald Koeman.

Southampton are looking to rebuild the squad following the sales of key men like Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana and Ricky Lambert after Mauricio Pochettino left to take over at Tottenham.

Tadic said: "It is a really nice feeling, this is a really nice club of which I have heard a lot of good things about. I have already seen the beautiful training centre and there are lots of nice people that work here including the coaches, so I am really happy to be here."
