Hailing from Southampton originally, former Chelsea Academy graduate Dynel Simeu has expressed his delight at returning "home" to the south coast, having put pen to paper on a three-year deal.

The defender joined Chelsea aged 13, often captaining youth teams as he progressed through the ranks, before deciding to pursue an avenue away from London in search of a shot at first-team football.

Still 19, Simeu will join up with the club's B team initially, whilst attempting to catch the eye of first-team manager Ralph Hasenhüttl.

"I feel glad, finally, that the move was made possible," the teenager commented. "I'm just excited to get started.

"It's nice to be back home, I've had a really friendly welcome. I feel comfortable that I'm home with my family, so I'm excited.

"I've got quite a bit of experience, I've played against these boys during Premier League 2. So I feel like I'll fit in perfectly and hopefully give a real boost to the squad.

"I hope to hit the ground running, get fit and comfortable with the boys and then hopefully push towards the first-team. There's no limit for me really, so I want to keep going.

When asked about what he will bring to the club, he added: "I see myself as a leader, so I hope to keep the boys calm, keep everyone happy and guide players on the pitch. Show that I can do my job, on the ball and also defensively."
