"I want to play in games at these great stadiums and hopefully be important for the team, whether it is from the bench or from the start.
"I spoke with the manager and he had some good words for me.
"If a trainer like this says these things to you it makes you really proud and I am happy to work with him."
Van Ginkel is hoping the step up in quality of the Premier League can make him a better player and earn him a call-up to the Netherlands squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
"Everybody wants to go to Brazil," Van Ginkel said.
"You have to play, that's what (head coach) Louis van Gaal has said to players.
"I think I can play games and I think the Premier League is higher than the Dutch league, so you can learn more physically and technically, and develop. That's why I am here."
