Saints midfielder Steven Davis says Victor Wanyama has settled in well after the £12.5m summer signing joined the squad in pre-season.
The Northern Ireland international, who was formerly with Rangers, admitted that the 22-year-old Kenyan international had integrated himself into the group quickly after joining the rest of the players in Austria earlier this month.
"He's a really nice lad to be fair," said Davis.
"He's only obviously joined us and been here for a couple of weeks but he has settled into the squad already and we've had a few conversations about our time in Scotland as well so he's getting on well."
Several Saints players have revealed how close the squad have become during their three-week pre-season tour and, while Davis admits it was tough to be away from family for so long, he agrees that it will benefit the club in the long term.
"It's been a long trip for a lot of the boys but it has been essential in terms of getting the work in for the season ahead," he added.
"It's gone alright (for me), I think it's the same with everybody it's about trying to get your fitness built up first and foremost, and getting your sharpness back and that will come with the more games you play and we're on the right path."
