On 18 June 2015, Cédric was announced as the second summer signing for Southampton on a four-year contract, with the club paying up to €6.5 million (£4.7 million) for his services.

He made his debut on 30 July, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3–0 win over Vitesse Arnhem at St. Mary’s Stadium for the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League. Ten days later he first appeared in the Premier League, assisting the opening goal for Graziano Pellè in an eventual 2–2 draw at Newcastle United before being substituted for Cuco Martina at half time.
