Vegard Forren is delighted with his move to Southampton and admits he knew about the change of manager before he joined.

New Southampton signing Vegard Forren has revealed his delight at securing a move to the club.

Forren joined from Molde earlier this month after rejecting the chance to have a trial at Liverpool.

The 24-year-old also admitted that he knew about the managerial situation at the club, with Nigel Adkins being replaced by Mauricio Pochettino on the day he arrived.

"I never spoke to Nigel," said Forren. "I knew that there was a change and the new manager wanted me here.

"For me it was never a problem, I was happy to be here and have the opportunity to play for Southampton.

"It has always been a dream to play in the Premier League. After a chat with Nicola (Cortese, the chairman) there was no doubt for me, with the plans he has for this club in the future."

Forren could make his debut for his Southampton when they take on Manchester United on Wednesday.
