Nigel Hasselbaink: Confident he could be a success in the Championship

The 22-year-old striker penned a two-year contract with Saints at the start of the current campaign, but is only planning on sticking around until the summer.

Hasselbaink has been targeted by clubs in League One in the past, but he believes he is capable of turning out in the Championship.

He is convinced he can be a success at that level and is confident an opportunity will present itself if he continues to impress in the Scottish Premier League.

"I'm using these seasons as a springboard to England as that's where I'll play next so it's good I play in Scotland," Hasselbaink said in the Daily Record.

"Last summer there was interest from League One but that's beneath my level.

"I'd prefer to play in the Championship."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
