Adams joined Saints from Birmingham for 15m at the beginning of July and has already opened his account for the club on debut against Altach on Sunday.

Adkins worked with the striker at Sheffield United and believes he has the ability to excel in the Premier League.

He told the Daily Echo: "I think everybody has to grasp an opportunity that presents itself.

"Che has now got a great opportunity at a super club like Southampton as long as he knuckles down and works hard, who from what I can see have a very good manager.

"There are many young players who have left clubs at an early age and went and played non-league football.

"Che did that which is very good for his development instead of just playing youth football somewhere.

"Like everything you look for natural progression.

"He obviously had a good season last year with Birmingham, scored a lot of goals and caught the club's eye.

"As long as he keeps his mindset right and keeps striving to improve, then he has got a great opportunity from what I can see at a really good football club.

"It's going to be down to him."

Adams joined Saints this summer from Birmingham City.

He told the Daily Echo: I was at Coventry as a youngster and then went for the non-league route.

I managed to do well down there and get myself into Sheffield United. I was there for three years and then I moved to Birmingham and now I'm here.

I maintained my belief which is something that I think the majority do.

Some players go under the radar and choose different routes, but I wanted to stick with it because I love football.

At that age, it's quite hard knowing who is going to do what and where they will move on to.

It's definitely benefitted me."

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."

Adams has completed his 16m move from Birmingham to Southampton, becoming Ralph Hasenhuttl's second summer signing.

Adams, who scored 22 goals last season, has signed a five-year deal after undergoing a medical on Sunday and agreeing personal terms.

I'm delighted that it has all gone through. There was interest in January but it didn't quite go through but I'm happy now it has," he said.

"You can see with the track history the amount of young players they're playing, the gaffer's belief in the young players, the squad in itself where the club is going to be. I want to be part of that.

That's something I noticed straight away. Even watching from the side when I was at Birmingham and I was watching Southampton play, I liked what Ralph did so when the opportunity came up I couldn't say no."

Adams is looking forward to joining up with his teammates and making his mark on the Premier League.

He added: It was a massive season for me last year and obviously Southampton have picked up on that and added me into the squad. I'm delighted with that and I can't wait to get going.

It's a new step and there's different players who I haven't played with but I can't wait for the challenge.

It's about proving myself again and proving to my teammates that I can play with them and we can make something happen."
