Done Deal : Southampton Sign Highly-Rated Nigerian Striker From Anderlecht
Through a statement on their official website, Premier League side Southampton have announced the signing of Nigerian striker Kazeem Olaigbe.

The 2003-born player ended his association with Belgian giants Anderlecht after agreeing a scholarship with The Saints.

Olaigbe is considered one of the hottest young prospects in Belgium and the dual-eligible youngster has caps for the country's U15 and U16 national teams.

He was named Most Valuable Player of the International Youth Tournament 2016, having starred as Anderlecht reached the final where they lost to Tottenham Hotspur.

Southampton have handed Olaigbe and twelve teenagers two-year scholarships as part of their new intake of Academy scholars.

He will be hoping to make a name for himself in the upcoming season at Southampton U18s.
