Southampton have bolstered their strikeforce with the signing of Zambia forward Emmanuel Mayuka from Young Boys Berne.

The 21-year-old has signed a five-year deal at St Mary's after passing a medical with the newly-promoted Barclays Premier League side on Tuesday.

Mayuka has already been granted a work permit and Saints are now awaiting entry clearance for the deal to be fully ratified, which is expected to happen before the end of this week.
