And he says that he expects to be up against top players in the fight for places in the starting eleven.

“At a club like this it is expected to sign top players.” he said.

“It can only lift you as a player, because it is all competition to get that starting place.

“I moved here knowing that there was going to be big signings here on top of the quality that is already here.

“For me it is all about developing and being the best I can be every day and try to compete against those players.

“It is only good additions for me to train and play alongside.

“It is all down to the staff and manager who picks the side.

“All you can do is improve every day and do the best you can day in day out.” he finished.
