Mayuka says his dream has come true
Mayuka - dream move
The 21-year-old Zambia striker on Tuesday moved from Swiss side Young Boys Berne to ‘The Saints’ on a five- year deal.
He becomes only the second Zambian to play in the EPL after Collins Mbesuma's unsuccessful stint at Portsmouth six years ago.
"Most footballers dream of playing in England. For me, this dream is coming true," Mayuka told Young Boys official website.
"I want to thank everyone who has supported me in the last two years, thank you. I will keep time with the Young Boys in your memory and never forget."
This week, Mayuka tweeted that he was considering a move to another English Premier League side, Queens Park Rangers.
The former Kabwe Warriors striker has now moved to promoted Southampton after a successful two –and-a-half years at Young Boys, where he scored 32 competitive goals after the Berne club snapped him from Israeli Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Mayuka was part of Zambia's 2012 Africa Cup-winning team where he scored three goals to win the tournament’s golden boot award.
