Ghanaian forward Kamaldeen Sulemana says his Black Stars teammate Mohammed Salisu did not have a hand in his decision to move to Southampton.
The 20 year swapped Rennes for Southampton in the recently ended January transfer window in a deal worth about £24.6 million which was a club record.
Speaking in his first interview for the club’s website, the winger stated he had conversations with Salisu about the Premier League in the past but not before he made switch from France.
“Before coming here obviously in the national team we talk about EPL, we talk about everything but before coming here he had nothing to do with the decision. I just made it by myself and then when I got here he showed me around and he’s still showing me around” Sulemana said.
Kamaldeen also expressed his eagerness and excitement to help the squad stay in the Premier League as the team currently sits at the bottom of the league table.
“I’m looking forward to giving my all to the team. To do what I do best to help the team win because that’s the most important thing and hopefully we’re able to win more games and stay and stay in the league and that’s the main goal” he added.
Kamaldeen made his Premier League debut over the weekend in Southampton’s 3-0 defeat to Brentford.
