Southampton hero De Ridder: Three years ago I was playing in Dutch Second Division!
The Belgian has spent much of his career in the lower divisions of Holland and Belgium.
"Three years ago I played in the second division in the Netherlands and now I'm going to the Premier League.
"Can I believe this? I have to, but it still has to sink in. I have not seen the pictures, we have not had time. But it was a fantastic party. 30,000 people on the field."
