Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, he spent his youth career in Danish clubs BK Skjold, F.C. Copenhagen and Brondby IF, being awarded Danish U17 Player of the Year in 2011 and Danish Talent of the Year in 2013 by Spillerforeningen, before joining German giants Bayern Munich in 2012. He made his Bundesliga debut at the age of 17 years and 251 days, thus becoming the youngest ever player to play for the Bayern Munich first-team in the Bundesliga. Most of his debut season was spent playing for the Bayern Munich reserves where he made 30 appearances and scored 8 goals. In the 2013/14 season the Danish midfielder made 9 appearances for Bayern Munich, 7 of them came in the Bundesliga and 2 in the DFB Pokal, which included an appearance in the DFB Pokal final where midfielder played 102 minutes in a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund as The Bavarians completed the domestic cup double of the Bundesliga and DFB Pokal. Due to the lack of first-team opportunities he would go out on loan to fellow Bundesliga outfits Augsburg and Schalke in the 2014/15 and 2015/16 season respectively. After failing to break in to the Bayern Munich first-team the midfielder decided to move elsewhere, his move would come in the form of Premier League club Southampton for whom he signed for a fee of £12.8 million on a 5-year-deal. At St. Mary's he finally saw regular first-team football he so desired, it took the Dane his first couple of seasons to adjust to the English demands, making 63 overall appearances but with no goal to show for it, however, the 2018/19 seasons would see him make 30 Premier League appearances scoring and assisting 4 goals a piece.
