Southampton have signed Belgian winger Steve De Ridder from De Graafschap for "a significant undisclosed fee".

The 24-year-old's arrival is seen as something of a coup for the npower Championship new-boys, who are thought to have beaten off stiff competition to land the player.

De Ridder told the club's official website: "I have got a great first impression about this club, I have already been treated so well since I arrived and it has given me a lot of confidence."

He added: "I hope to pay that back on the field.

"As soon as I arrived here I was convinced that this was the right move, this is a big adventure for me and I am looking forward to it."
