It was a little over six weeks ago that Southampton secured the club record signing of Dani Osvaldo from Roma, but now the striker wants to leave, reports the Sunday People.

The Argentine-born Italian international described his £15 million shock move to the Saints as a "dream."

However it appears as though the 27-year-old has a new dream after a difficult start to life in England.

He said: “Football here is so physical, but it doesn’t have the technique and quality that it has in Spain.

“I’m already thinking about moving back to Argentina. I want to play for Boca, that’s my dream.

“I have been dreaming about wearing Boca’s shirt during my entire life.”

Few can be surprised that Osvaldo is already getting cold feet as the striker who played under current manager Mauricio Pochettino at Espanyol as well, has never stayed more than two years at any club and the Saints are his eighth in an eight-year career as a professional footballer so far.

The Premier League hasn't been an easy adventure for Osvaldo, in his full home debut against West Ham United he was denied by a string of fine saves from Jussi Jääskeläinen and couldn't find the scoresheet in a loss against Norwich City.

However, the nine cap international did notch his maiden goal last week at St Mary's against Crystal Palace in what has been an encouraging start for Pochettino's side in the league.

In fact, victory today at home to Swansea City could see them move as high as third place although that would also require Tottenham and Chelsea dropping points.
