Saints to sign Elia


Eljero Elia will become Southampton’s first January signing when he joins on loan for the rest of the season from Werder Bremen.


The 27-year-old has been labelled as the Dutch Mario Balotelli due to his off-field antics however Ronald Koeman is set to take a chance on the winger. Elia has 27 international caps and will arrive in the Premier League tasked with helping Southampton return to the form that has seen them challenging for a Champions League spot in the first half of the season.
