Shane Long signs four year deal with Southampton after completing £12 million move from Hull
Shane Long has completed a move to Southampton from Hull, signing a four year contract with Ronald Koeman’s side.
The Irish striker cost the club an estimated £12 million just six months after he moved from West Brom to Hull for an estimated £4m, with the fee potentially rising to £7m. West Brom will receive around £400,000 as part of the deal to take him to Saint Mary’s.
Long impressed for Hull when he made the switch to the club in January but only scored four goals in 15 appearances, hardly the kind of ratio which provokes a fee of this size.
The forward has 11 goals in 47 appearances at International level.
