The summer transfer window of 2015 is becoming quite the spectacle after players such as Bastian Schweinsteiger, Radamel Falcao, Morgan Schneiderlin, Robin van Persie and Petr Cech have all made monumental moves in the opening couple of weeks.

Now, another exciting starlet has joined the English top flight in Jordy Clasie.

If you're not the best follower of continental football, then fear not because the following will provide you with all the information you could need.

Jordy Clasie profile

You may not be familiar with Clasie at club level, but those with an outstanding memory may be able to recall his brief appearance at the 2014 World Cup with Louis van Gaal's Netherlands side. 

The 24-year-old met a sour end to the tournament with a nasty injury, however.

By joining last season's over performers, Southampton, Clasie is reunited with his former manager at Feyenoord in the Eredivisie, Ronald Koeman, who speaks very highly of his latest signing.

"Jordy is very talented, hence why I have brought him to the club," the Dutch boss explained, and shortly after the exit of well-rated midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, he added "Morgan will be missed very much, but I feel that his successor can fill his boots."

What can he bring to Southampton?

Southampton's squad just keeps on growing in quality as it would seem. Last season when they were raided by Liverpool, a lot of pundits tipped Saints for the drop, but Ronald Koeman's men silence the critics, and then some more with an eventual final positioning of 7th.

With Nathaniel Clyne and Morgan Schneiderlin already gone with the wind, again, the pundits are questioning how Southampton can deal with the exits of top quality players.

Clasie, along with fellow summer signings on the south coast, Juanmi, Cuco Martina, Cedric Soares and Maarten Stekelenburg, can again form another formidable squad that is an opposition to be reckoned with from top club level to bottom.
