Southampton have completed the signing of Super Eagles striker, Paul Onuachu from Genk.

Onuachu signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the Premier League outfit.

The deal is worth £15.8m plus add-ons, the Belgian club fought off a last-minute competition from Frankfurt to land the prolific striker.

Southampton manager Nathan Jones is delighted to add Onuachu to the squad.

“Paul is a significant signing for us and completes what has been an extremely positive month in terms of recruitment.

“He’s a handful to play against, has got a tremendous record throughout his career and he’s also someone who brings great experience with him, so he’ll be a really positive addition to the squad.”

Onuachu enjoyed a fruitful time in Belgium scoring 85 goals in 134 appearances for Genk.

The 28-year-old scored 17 goals in 22 appearances for Genk in the Belgian league this season.

Onuachu will team up with his Super Eagles teammate Joe Aribo at Southampton.
