Southampton have completed the signing of defender Gregory Vignal on a season-long loan from French club Lens.
Vignal has arrived at St Mary's on a year's loan
The 26-year-old joined Liverpool from Montpelier for £500,000 in 2000, and included Portsmouth and Rangers among his subsequent loan-spell stops.
He told Saints website: "I'm delighted to be back in English football. George Burley wanted me, which is important for me.
"I've signed a year loan with an option so if we go up, maybe I can stay."
