After failing in ambitious bids to land winger Serge Gnabry and left back Ferland Mendy this week, Hamburger manager Marsden has swooped for long-time target, veteran utility wide player Ashley Young.
Departing for Southampton in return will be Marcos Rojo, who has been a rock in der Dino’s promotion-winning back line this season, until succumbing to injury.
Also joining as part of the Rojo deal is young left-back Adam Masina.
The club is delighted to bring in a versatile and experienced leader like Ashley Young. He will give us more options in Division Two next season, in full-back and wing positions.
Adam Masina is a player I like, and he will provide much-needed cover and competition for Marcel Schmelzer on the left.
We’re sorry to see Marcos go after such a great season, but we wish him every success at Southampton, and thank his new manager Niall Taylor for the quick and easy negotiations.Manager Marsden on his new acquisitions
