Southampton have signed veteran former Bolton Wanderers and Birmingham City defender Radhi Jaidi on a two-year contract.
The 34-year-old Tunisia international left St Andrew's at the end of last season and only requires international clearance to link up with the Saints.
He told his new club's official website: "The first thing for me is the fact that Southampton is a big club and I have known that ever since I came to England.
"As soon as I was given the opportunity to come here I accepted, because I know this club has a big infrastructure.
"I think I can add strength and experience to the team, that's what I will bring to help us reach our targets."
