Maya Yoshida admits the presence of Tadanari Lee at Southampton is helping him to settle quickly on the south coast.

The Japan defender joined Saints last month from VVV Venlo.

"Of course, I asked him many things: about housing, the teammates, the coach and the culture," Yoshida told the Daily Echo.

"Southampton is a very nice place.

"In the south, not far from London and I think I can buy Japanese food. And nearby there's a port, so there will be a nice view, I think."
