Southampton's record signing Daniel Osvaldo insists he is happy in the Premier League and that he loves the club.

It was rumoured last week that the striker wanted to leave, despite only singing for the Saints from Roma in the summer.

He was quoted in an interview with Argentine television show Telenoche saying the Premier League is more physical than other top leagues, and that one day he would like to sign for Boca Juniors.

But the Italian has taken to Twitter to make it clear that he enjoys the Premier League and is happy at St Mary's.

He wrote: " I'm happy in the premier league and I Love Southampton !!! I do not understand why false things write...".

Osvaldo cost Southampton an initial fee of £12.8 million plus bonuses, and scored his first goal for the club against Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

He was taken off during Southampton's 2-0 win over Swansea with a blow, but Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino says he expects him to be fit for Italy for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
