Transfer frenzy for Southampton, West Ham and Tottenham Hotpsur

By KBC Sportsdesk

English Premier League side Southampton’s striker Graziano Pelle has joined Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng.

The Italy international is believed to have moved for around 12million pounds in a deal that will give him in the region of 140,000 pounds a week.

Meanwhile the English club has announced the signing of Danish international Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Bayern Munich, with the midfielder signing a five-year deal with the Saints.

The club signed the 20-year-old to bolster the midfield options at the club after Victor Wanyama left for Spurs in an 11m pounds deal earlier in the window.

Hojbjerg made his Bundesliga debut at just 17 back in 2013, but has found first-team football hard to come by in Germany. However, he’s made 30 appearances for Schalke 04 last season in a loan deal from parent club Bayern.

West Ham have completed the loan signing of Turkish winger Gökhan Töre from Besiktas. Töre, whose previous clubs include Rubin Kazan and Hamburg, has been capped 26 times by his country.

After signing Wanyama earlier, English premier league side Tottenham have signed Dutch striker Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar for 17 million pounds on a four-year deal.

The 22-year-old scored 27 league goals in the Dutch top flight last season and netted a penalty on his international debut against England in March.

He is Spurs’ second summer signing, after the 11 Million pounds arrival of Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama.

French champions Paris St-Germain and German club Wolfsburg were also reported to be interested in Janssen.

His performances in his debut top-flight season earned him the Johan Cruyff Trophy, awarded to the Eredivisie’s young player of the year.

Janssen has played five times for his country, scoring three goals
