Adam Armstrong: Southampton playing style convinced me

Adam Armstrong says he was attracted to Southampton because of Ralph Hasenhuttl's style of play.

The English striker has joined Saints from Blackburn Rovers on a four-year deal after a £15m transfer was agreed.

"I think that's what attracted me towards Southampton – the way they play, they're on the front foot, the pressing, counter-attacking," Armstrong told the club's website.

"That's something that's my kind of game as well – I've scored most of my goals on the counter-attack or from chances being created high up the pitch where I'm taking balls off defenders.

"I spoke to the gaffer and it just seemed perfect, and I've touched on it before – I'm over the moon that I'm here and hopefully I can kick-start my career.

"I had a chat with him and he just explained how he wants me to play, how his team play, and that was a major key of coming here."
