Che Adams reveals Ings chat about Southampton partnership

Former Birmingham City striker Che Adams is happy with his first days as a Southampton player.

With his first week of pre-season behind him, Adams told the Daily Echo that the initial nerves he felt have faded away.

“I'm adapting quite well because of the lads being so helpful every day in training and the staff as well. It's been good," explained Adams.

“You do get anxious. It's like starting at a new school again with people you have never met before and who have never heard of you.

“I'm hoping to get to grips with it pretty quickly. Everyone has been really good on and off the pitch in helping me settle in."

Asked about fellow striker Danny Ings, Adams continued: “I've already spoken to him a little bit and he is a really good guy off the pitch. He has played in the Premier League for a few years and hopefully he can help me through.

“He hasn't given me any advice yet, it's just been general chat. He's helped me off the pitch and I'm hoping he can help me on it.

“We've only been doing tests so far, so haven't been able to work together on the pitch yet."
