Yeovil Town prospect Marco Rus has signed for Southampton on an academy scholarship.

Attacking talent Rus, originally from Romania, told the Saints’ official website: “It’s overwhelming to be here. As soon as I visited Southampton I was amazed.

“I’m very excited. I was away with Romania on international duty when I first heard of interest from Southampton.

“My family are all very proud and being here is the first step towards achieving my dream of becoming a professional footballer.”

Academy Director Matt Hale said: “Marco, having been at Yeovil for the past four years, has a real hunger and desire to succeed. He is a clever, tricky player who will offer creativity to the Under-18s group.”
