Sofiane Boufal joins Celta Vigo on loan from Southampton

Southampton winger Sofiane Boufal has completed Celta Vigo transfer on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old Morocco international joined the Saints in a £16m deal from Lille in August 2016, making 59 appearances and scoring four goals.

However, Boufal does not feature in the plans of manager Mark Hughes for the new campaign having fallen out of favour towards the end of last season. He last played for the club in March and was left out of Southampton’s pre-season tour to China.A statement on the Southampton website said: “We wish Sofiane good luck for the season ahead.”
