"This was really where I wanted to be. The sheer size of the club is impressive from the stadium to the first-class training ground," he said.
"I was very impressed by what Southampton had to offer and by their goalkeeping coach David Coles.
"He had a lot of fresh and different ideas and he is a really nice man too.
"He worked us hard but I have no problem with that because I am here to learn and improve.
"There were a few teams watching me but it was not too unsettling even though I knew I wanted to play in the Premiership."
