FC Midtjylland midfielder Tim Sparv has spoken of his time with Southampton.
The Finland international joined the Saints academy as a teen and played with some of the club's best graduates.
He told Viaplay Sport Live: "It was a fantastic environment for a young boy from Finland.
"I was 16 when I flew to England and it was a fine football school and you got away from your comfort zone.
"There was more competition and it was a positive experience."
