Southampton signs Van Dijk's Netherlands teammate Hoedt

SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) Southampton has signed Wesley Hoedt from Lazio and provided another indication of its determination to retain his Netherlands teammate and fellow center back, Virgil van Dijk.

Despite handing in a transfer request, Van Dijk's attempts to leave the Premier League club have been rebuffed. And Southampton is expecting to play Van Dijk in the same team as Hoedt, who signed a five-year contract on Tuesday.

Southampton vice chairman Les Reed says the club believes Hoedt can "develop even further here at Southampton, alongside his international teammate Virgil van Dijk, as well as the likes of Jack Stephens, Maya Yoshida, Jan Bednarek and Florin Gardos."
