‘Southampton is a club with a very rich history in developing young players, so it is a very good club for me to develop my skills and to learn a lot as a young player.

‘I know that the team expects a lot from me and I’m going to try to give all I can to help the team.’

Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl said: ‘This is an important signing for us. Mohammed is a player who fits our profile well. He is young and has a great amount of potential, but he is also someone who has the qualities to come in and help the team as soon as he is up to speed with our way of playing.
