Emmanuel Mayuka: Believes Southampton are one of the best clubs in England
New Southampton striker Emmanuel Mayuka says he cannot wait to fulfil his "dream" of playing Premier League football.
Zambia international Mayuka joined the newly-promoted Saints from Swiss side Young Boys Berne on Tuesday.
He could make his English debut when Nigel Adkins' men host Manchester United on Sunday.
And the 21-year-old attacker, Zambia's joint top scorer when they won the 2012 African Cup of Nations, believes he can find the net on a regular basis for the South Coast club.
"I've always dreamed of playing in the Premier League and I thank God," said Mayuka. "I'm happy now that I'm here and I just want to do my thing to help the team.
"We will do well together - that's the most important thing and that's why I'm here, to help the team to achieve our goals."
He added: "I cannot wait to be out there wearing a Southampton shirt and get going.
"I think the passion of the team and the fans is good and I believe that Southampton is one of the best clubs in England, so for me it was quite easy to decide to come here.
"I'm a good scoring striker and I believe Southampton is best for me."
