thumbnail Hello,

The striker believes the Premier League will suit his style and cites past experience against English sides in the Europa League as something to build on

Norwich striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel believes he will be able to settle quickly into life in the Premier League following his move from Sporting Lisbon.

The Netherlands international will arrive at Carrow Road on a four-year contract having completed an £8.5 million deal, and having managed double figures for goals scored in each of his last four seasons.

Van Wolfswinkel has played at three different clubs in just six seasons and believes this will help him settle into his new surroundings.

“I’ve never really had that much trouble getting used to a new competition or new team so I hope I can do the same again,” he told the club’s official website.

“But you have to work hard of course, you have to bring your quality and add that to the team and we’ll see how it works out, but I have a really great feeling about it.”

The 24-year-old has faith in his ability and trusts his decision to move to the Premier League, claiming experience playing against English sides in the Europa League with Sporting will stand him in good stead.

He continued: “I of course played a few games against English clubs in the Europa League and scored against English teams so I know what I have to do and I know what I can do in the Premier League.

“They all say of course that it is more physical, but on the other hand I think I have the qualities and good movements to make it difficult for some defenders.

“I really hope that I can play my game and stamp that on the Premier League. It’s a perfect move for me. This was the only competition I really wanted to go and play in.”
