Romeu - right decision to join Saints

The former Chelsea midfielder is eager to prove himself in the Premier League and feels his rediscovered form is down to joining Saints the summer before last.

He told Marca: "I look back and think that I was completely right with the decision I made. If I were not here I doubt I would have reached this level."

Having overcome two serious knee injuries in the past, he admits harbouring doubts, but Romeu has been one of the most-utilised players by Saints boss Puel.

The French tactician has told the 25-year-old Saints star he can go on to represent his country at senior international level under Julen Lopetegui - his former Spain under-21 boss.

"I was with Julen for a year in the Under-21s and enjoyed it," he added.

"I am playing well, I don't know if I can make the squad, but it is clear that we all dream of playing for Spain and I will continue working for it."
