STRIKER Lys Mousset believes "everything changed" when he joined Sheffield United from Cherries, adding: "They never really gave me a chance at Bournemouth."

The Frenchman ended a three-year stay at Vitality Stadium when he joined the Blades last summer for a fee of around £10million.

He netted just five goals in 71 appearances on the south coast, most of which were substitute appearances, following his arrival from Le Havre.

But Mousset has already surpassed that tally after one season with Chris Wilder's men, bagging six goals in 33 outings as he helped his new side to an impressive ninth-placed finish in the Premier League.

And as reported by Sport Witness, the 24-year-old explained how he is enjoying a new lease of life in south Yorkshire.

In translated quotes from an interview with French outlet Paris-Normandie, Mousset said: "They never really gave me a chance at Bournemouth.

"Everything changed for me (at Sheffield United). They play me, I feel good in the group and the fans are great.

"The stadium is far bigger than Bournemouth's, who are a small club. The atmosphere, it's crazy."

Mousset enjoyed a blistering start to the 2019-20 campaign, scoring five times in his first 11 top-flight Blades outings, including vital strikes against Arsenal and Manchester United.

But he then endured a seven-month dry spell in front of goal either side of Project Restart, before notching his final goal of the campaign in victory over Tottenham in July.

"If I was less decisive at a certain point, it's because I wasn't great in my head," said Mousset.

"Because I didn't play a lot for three years at Bournemouth, I fell victim to small injuries to my knee and my Achilles."
