McQueen on 'indescribable' feeling after new Saints deal

By SFC Media Mon 05 Dec Sam McQueen

Sam McQueen says recent months have been ‘indescribable’ having committed to the club for the next four-and-a-half years.

The 21-year-old, who has been with his hometown club since the age of eight, has put pen to paper on a deal with Saints until 2021.

McQueen has now made 10 appearances so far in the current campaign, six of which have been starts as manager Claude Puel continues the club’s philosophy of developing and nurturing young players.

Speaking to southamptonfc.com, McQueen said: “It’s indescribable. It’s quite hard to put in to words because it¹s a dream come true for me.

“It’s been really special to share it with family, my girlfriend, friends and everyone else at the club because it’s like a family.”

And while for some the transition into first-team football is not easy, McQueen has made it look seamless with the help of his teammates.

“I’ve been around the first team for a while and everyone is friendly and gets on.

“We’ll have conversations and people know each other on a personal level so when it comes to doing it on the training ground or on the pitch it feels natural.

“You can worry about yourself and not have to worry about anything else that is going on.”
