Pierre-Emile Højbjerg says that despite being at the club for just two weeks, he's already enjoying life as a Southampton player and has settled in already.

Højbjerg joined from German giants Bayern Munich and became Saints' second summer signing after Nathan Redmond's move from Norwich.

The Dane said that the group of players at the club have made it easy for him to settle in and has already learned a lot in his short time with the club.

He said: "It’s some fantastic boys. It’s a good atmosphere. I just try to be who I am and they’ve really accepted it.

"I really look forward to many years in Southampton. I’m comfortable around the team, I feel good and I learn a lot. This is what I like as a man and a football player to learn every day and try and do my best."

The 20-year-old has already featured for Saints and scored from the penalty spot in Southampton's 4-0 win over PEC Zwolle. Despite scoring his first goal for the club, Højbjerg is focused to scoring when the goals count.

"A goal is always nice but I just try and do my best and help the team.

"It was a friendly game so of course it was nice to make a goal. It’s in the Premier League, in the cup and in the Europa League where it counts."

Højbjerg believes that all the players at the club are giving everything to show their worth to new manager Claude Puel.

"We all try and make our best impression to show the coach that we got something that we can help the team with.

"Every player is working hard and giving everything they have. I just try and do my best and hopefully I can help the team."
