Ross County manager Malky Mackay says Southampton left-back Jake Vokins has a ‘brilliant opportunity’ to show his talent in Scotland.

Mackay has made Vokins his third summer signing as County manager after midfielder Ross Callachan and striker Dominic Samuel. The left-back has made a handful of senior Southampton appearances and has also spent time on loan at Sunderland, prior to confirming his Dingwall switch.

County boss Mackay said of Vokins’ transfer to the cinch Premiership: “Jake is a very talented young player that has been exposed to football at the very top level. When you look at some of the games he has played in it shows the faith, belief and trust from the football management at Southampton.

“It is exciting to add Jake for the upcoming season. We identified Jake very early on as a player we would like to try and bring into our group, as a player with experience in the Premier League, Cup competitions and at International level. It is a brilliant opportunity for Jake to showcase himself.”
