Southampton ace Redmond: Adams is Premier League class

Southampton ace Nathan Redmond insists teammate Che Adams is Premier League class.

Adams is yet to register his first goal for the St Mary's side since his £15m summer move from Birmingham.

Redmond told the Daily Echo: “I've spoken to him about it before and told him that I went through a tough stage that saw me getting booed by the fans, whether that being home or away – I couldn't do anything right," Redmond told the Daily Echo before he picked up his hip injury.

“The following season I finished top goalscorer, Players' Player of the Year and Fans' Player of the Year.

“I told him his luck can change within a year.

“For him, he just needs that first goal.

“I'm a Birmingham boy. I've watched so many games and I know exactly what he can do. I know the handful that he is.

“He's a great lad as well. He puts the effort in during training every single day and I think he'd be worried if he didn't.

“We can't question his work rate and desire to keep plugging away."
