Southampton fans thrilled as they reportedly agree deal for Moussa Djenepo

Southampton have reportedly agreed a deal for Standard Liege attacker Moussa Djenepo – and some of the club’s supporters are thrilled on Twitter.

According to Sky Sports, the Saints have reached an agreement with the Belgian club for the 20-year-old.

It is understood that the winger is going to undergo a medical in Paris and could obtain a work permit next week.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that it’s a £14million deal that has been agreed for the Mali international.

Djenepo could be on his way to St Mary’s and has just enjoyed a strong season in Belgium.

The speed machine made 39 appearances across all competitions, scoring 11 goals and supplying six assists in return.

It would be a step up to the Premier League, but he does have experience in European football with Standard Liege and is a dazzling wide player that could terrorise full-backs in England if he settles.

The left-winger usually operates from the flank, but can play anywhere across the frontline including centrally.

Here are some fans that are keen for Djenepo to join:
