Southampton signing Vestergaard: Every Danish guy loves to see himself in the Premier League

Southampton signing Jannick Vestergaard admits his Premier League move is a dream come true.

The defender arrives from Borussia Monchengladbach.

Still only 25, Vestergaard believes his Bundesliga experience will serve him well in England, having signed a four-year contract with Southampton.

“Every Danish guy loves to see himself in the Premier League – it is the biggest league in the world and a very attractive place to play as a Danish footballer," he said.

“It has always been a dream – it is a dream – and right now I'm looking forward to it.

“I still have to experience the Premier League, but I don't feel there are so many different aspects in the football itself.

“I think there is more awareness in the Premier League that will take some getting used to – the press side of things – but experience is always positive, and having about 200 games in the Bundesliga will make it easier for me to adapt.

“I'm quite a big guy and a physical guy, so I'm going to try to help the team in that way."
