Vegard Forren says he's determined to make it at Southampton.
Forren is yet to play for the club, despite joining in a £3.5m deal from Norwegian side Molde last January.
When we took Vegard to Southampton it was obviously in the middle of the season (in England) and he came from holiday, so it was agreed he was going to build his fitness towards this summer's pre-season and upcoming season," agent Jim Solbakken told the Daily Echo.
"It is obviously a huge step for a player coming from Norway to the Premier League and it takes time.
"He is patient, ready and committed to that. "We knew what was coming and we all agreed."
