Saints complete £2million deal for Spurs striker Rasiak

May 2, 2006

Southampton have completed the £2million signing of striker Grzegorz Rasiak from Tottenham.

The 27-year-old Poland international joined Saints on loan in February with an agreement to make the move permanent when the transfer window reopened, and has now signed a four-year deal at St Mary's.

Rasiak has hit four goals in 12 games since George Burley brought him to the south coast following a frustrating spell at White Hart Lane.

He failed to find the net in nine league and cup appearances after Spurs paid Derby £2million for his services last summer.

'I have enjoyed myself here and I am happy to be here,' Rasiak told the club's official website.

'I think I have done okay so far and the team is playing much better. It is looking good for next season.

'I am very happy here and want to stay longer - and it has been good preparation for the World Cup which I am now looking forward to.'
