Jason Euell believes he can add creativity and goals to the Saints midfield.

The 30-year-old signed a two-year deal at St Mary's yesterday after Saints agreed a free transfer deal to take him from Middlesbrough.

Euell spent the first five years of his career at Wimbledon, and was actually part of the team relegated by Saints on the final day of the season at the Dell in 2000.

After establishing himself with the Dons, he made a £4.75m move to Charlton in 2001 where he spent another five years before moving on to Boro.

Euell started out as a striker but has moved back into an attacking central midfield role which is where he will be used by Saints.

He said: "The manager has brought me here as a midfielder to bring the experience and quality I've got to the team.

"He wants me to try and get forward and create chances and score goals.

"He knows I can play up front as well and it's something we've discussed, but that's a second option.

"The first reason I'm here is to be a midfielder and bring some quality, experience, goals and assists to the side".
