Mohamed Elyounoussi happy at Southampton

Mohamed Elyounoussi insists he and his family are settled in Southampton.

The Norway winger has excelled for Saints this season and has attracted interest from Arsenal and Leicester City.

"When I got the opportunity when the Saints came in and gave me an offer, it was a huge dream," he said, speaking to Southampton FC in their matchday program.

"It was a big move, I knew that Southampton has followed me for a few years, especially during ym last season in Basel. I think they were there almost every game, so that made me comfortable to come here.

"It didn't work out as we thought at the beginning, I needed time to adapt, I had a few injuries and things just didn't go my way, really.

"I needed time to get better, to get game time and find myself against and get some confidence.

"I am really happy I went through something like that and came back to show a better side of myself. I don't know many players that have been sent out on two loan seasons and then come back to make it in the team. It shows the belief that the club and the manager have in me to give me a second chance, I'm just glad that I took it."
