Deadline Day signing Danny Ings expressed his delight at a dream move to hometown club Southampton.
Ings, who grew up a Southampton fan in the town of Netley, joins on an initial season-long loan before a permanent move next summer.
“It feels great. Obviously travelling down it felt kind of strange at first! I’m over the moon to come home and be close to my family,” Ings reflected.
“Everyone was aware of my situation at Liverpool. I found it very difficult last season after my injuries.
“When this football club came up, I had to take the opportunity to come home. It’s a fantastic football club who play great football and I’m just happy here.
“You can tell that as a club it’s very, very organised. From the start, everyone I’ve met has been fantastic with me and shown me every single detail I need to know. The facilities are great and I can’t wait to get started.
“I felt it was time to start a new journey for me. I want to test myself and I feel fit and ready to go. I want to show the country what I’m about again.”
