Mainz confirm Djuricic to Southampton
Filip Djuricic has cut short his loan with Mainz to join Premier League club Southampton, the Bundesliga side have confirmed.
Attacking midfielder Djuricic penned a season-long loan deal with Mainz in August with a view to a permanent move, after struggling for regular first-team action at parent club Benfica.
However, that agreement has now been cancelled and Djuricic will link up with Southampton - initially on loan.
"Filip Djuricic is moving at his own request to the Premier League," read a statement on Mainz's official website.
"[He] is loaned with immediate effect to Southampton."
Djuricic made just 11 Bundesliga appearances for Mainz, with six of those as part of the starting XI.
