Saints’ new signing Che Adams says he has learned a lot from his coming of age season in the Championship with Birmingham City.

Adams struck 22 goals during 2018/19 and was named in the division’s Team of the Season, only narrowly missing out on the Player of the Season award.

And after working his way through the leagues following his start at Ilkeston Town, he feels he can carry confidence into the Premier League.

“It was a massive season for me last year and obviously Southampton have picked up on that and added me into the squad. I’m delighted with that and I can’t wait to get going.

“It’s improved me a lot. The Championship is a very hard league and everyone wants one thing which is promotion.

“I’ve went through that stage and I found it difficult at times but I think I’ve really developed and learned a lot."

Describing his style of play, he added: “I’m attack-minded, creating chances and scoring goals. Just being a threat and a nuisance to defenders and with the players I’m going to be playing with hopefully that will improve.

“I started in non-league when I was younger at 16, 17 and I worked my way up the trade. I got a breakthrough at Sheffield United. It went well, it was my first professional season and then went to Birmingham after that before joining Southampton. It’s a huge club and it was easy to say yes.”
