"Obviously I am very happy and excited (to be back on the pitch). I am encouraged because big clubs keep on contacting my agent and saying that they wish to include me in their project."

"Fiorentina and Napoli (for example), I am told the doors are always open. But my main aim is to play regularly, I missed playing a lot (this past year), I now need to get regular playing time."

The lanky midfielder has managed four appearances (three from the bench) since his return from injury in November.
