Long completes Saints switch
Aug 14, 2014 1:32 PM EST
Shane Long has completed a switch to Southampton, signing a four-year deal just seven months after leaving West Brom to join Hull City.
The Republic of Ireland striker moved to the KC Stadium in January, for a fee reported to be in the region of £6million.
However, after scoring four goals in 15 league appearances for Steve Bruce's men, Long has been snapped up by a Southampton side eager for reinforcements following the departures of several star names.
While the fee paid for Long has not been disclosed, the south-coast club are reported to have parted with £12m for the 27-year-old.
