Jannik Vestergaard returned home from World Cup duty with Denmark having failed to make an appearance and promptly signed for Southampton a few days ago.
The 6ft 6in centre-back has signed a four-year deal at St. Mary's, becoming their record transfer in the process at approximately £18 million ($23.6m). The 24 year-old arrives from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach, for whom he made 79 appearances in two seasons including run-outs in the Champions League and Europa League. Given his height, it's not a shock that Vestergaard is renowned for his aerial ability - he won 90 aerial duels in the German top flight last term, a 60% success rate. 90 is the 13th best tally of all players in that division. The Dane also topped the league for blocked shots (35) and was 7th for clearances (146). His 3 defensive errors placed him 19th for that unfortunate tally but just one led to a breakthrough for the opposition. Tue, Jul 17, 2018 04:05:00 PM
