Saints boss George Burley has been looking to add to his squad after letting a number of players leave last month.
Burley has now moved to tie up a loan deal for Rasiak until the end of the season after the loan window reopened earlier this week.
Rasiak is looking for first-team football as he looks to safeguard his World Cup place with Poland.
The giant striker has failed to break into Martin Jol's starting XI and has struggled to make an impact at White Hart Lane since his move from Derby.
Burley, who signed Rasiak at Derby, has moved to be reunited with the striker and he could make his debut this Friday against Reading.
Rasiak's agent Giorgio De Giorgis confirmed a deal had been agreed and that the player was looking forward to working under Burley again.
"It is a done deal everything was agreed last night," De Giorgis told skysports.com.
"Grzegorz will join Southampton on loan for the rest of the season.
"We will then see at the end of the loan if Southampton would be interested in keeping Grzegorz.
"He is happy with the move as it is his goal to be playing regularly with the World Cup in mind.
"He links up again with George Burley which he is delighted about and he could make his debut on Friday against Reading."
One player to have completed a loan move to St Mary's on Wednesday is West Bromwich Albion midfielder Richard Chaplow.
The former Burnley player arrives on the South Coast for a three-month loan spell, as he looks to earn regular first-team action with The Saints.
