Spurs misfit Rasiak moves to Saints

TOTTENHAM misfit Grzegorz Rasiak has joined Southampton on loan for the rest of the season with a view to a permanent move in the summer.

The Polish striker joins up again with Saints head coach George Burley, under whom he played at Derby. He has signed a three-month contract at St Mary’s and will then complete a guaranteed £2m move.

The 27-year-old, who Burley signed on a free transfer from Siena before selling him on to Spurs for £2m, has endured a frustrating spell at White Hart Lane, starting just five games under Martin Jol and failing to find the net.

Burley, who also completed the loan capture of West Brom midfielder Richard Chaplow, finished a busy day’s work by snapping up Leeds midfielder Jermaine Wright on loan until the end of the season.
