Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Bruno Fernandes has made an instant impact in the dressing room by giving everyone a boost.
Solskjaer threw Fernandes straight into the starting line-up for their Premier League clash with Wolves at Old Trafford, just two days after completing a long-awaited move from Sporting Lisbon.
The arrival of Fernandes in a deal which could rise to £67.8million came as a major boost for the Red Devils - and Solskjaer says the same impact has been felt in the dressing room.
And he says the need to ease the burden on some of his tired players influenced the decision to throw him straight into the starting line-up.
Speaking ahead of the Wolves game, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: "I think there's been loads of fans waiting for Bruno to come and the players as well.
"He's been a very good influence since he's come.
"Of course it's been a few hectic days for him, but I think the boost of him being around has been good for everyone.
"He's raring to go, he wants to play, and for us, we need some fresh legs as well because we've had 18 games in the last two months which is a big demand for these boys."
Fernandes is not the only late arrival at United, with Odion Ighalo sealing a Deadline Day loan move.
Speaking about the late signing of the ex-Watford man as a temporary addition to cover for Marcus Rashford, Solskjaer added: "The club's always been very good, and in Odion we get a proper man, great lad, a good goalscorer.
"It's not long ago he was the top goalscorer in the African Cup of Nations.
"I know him from way back, he was in Norway, 10-12 years ago, and his career has developed.
"He gives us a different option up front so I'm delighted that he wanted to come for a few months.
"It's now until the end of the season on loan, and for us it's great to have him around.
"I know he's a Man Utd fan and he'll give us absolutely everything on and off the pitch."
