The 24-year old, who spent three years with the Ligue 1 club since joining from Dinamo Zagreb, attracted interest from a number of European sides, with Liverpool also reported to have been keen on securing his services.

Lovren cost the Saints a fee believed to be in the region of £8million, and he thinks that it is an exciting time to be a part of Mauricio Pochettino's squad.

"I had a discussion with the chairman and the manager, it's a great project and I want to play a part of this project and because of that I want to play here," he told Sky Sports News.

"Now I am here and I am very happy.

"We have a dream and the dream is top seven, top five, top four, I don't know. We want better, of course we want better, and we can do better."

ave to go for Everton myself. Leon Osman looks like everyone's mate down the pub. Leighton Baines can't take himself too seriously with his dodgy haircut. Steven Piennar looks like he'd cry if you were nasty to him. And Tim Howard looks like he'd give you the most perfect man-hug you could ever imagine.
