The South Coast Club said Southampton had signed Japan’s international Takumi Minamino from Premier League champions Liverpool on a loan deal until the end of the season.
In the second half of the campaign, Southampton coach Ralph Hasenhuettl said the 26-year-old, who has played 26 times for Japan, will give a strong attacking choice.
“I’m very pleased to welcome Takumi to our squad for the rest of this season,” Hasenhuettl told the club’s website.
“This will give us some additional depth in our squad at an important time and I’m looking forward to beginning work with him on the training pitch.”

After completing a loan move to Birmingham City, defender Yan Valery will also play for the rest of the campaign in the English second tier.
