Former Saints target Alexander Buttner is on the verge of joining Manchester United.
According to reports in Holland, the 23-year-old Vitesse Arnhem left-back has flown to England today to undergo a medical with United tomorrow ahead of penning a five-year contract.
Buttner was quoted as saying in Omroep Gelderland : "This is truly a dream come true. It all went very quickly and I am of course very happy."
Saints had agreed a deal for the player earlier this summer, only for a move to subsequently fall through.
