Genclerbirligi striker Elvis Manu says he is settling in at his new club.

The Dutch-born forward joined the Turkish outfit on a two-year deal as a free agent earlier this month.

He transferred from newly-promoted English Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion.

"A new club, a new country, a new language; there was anxiety but there are great people here," Manu told his club's official website.

"They accepted me right there. I will go through the adaptation process quickly.

''I am grateful to all my friends for this. It is also a great advantage for me that the [preseason] camp is in my country. 

"I think this process facilitates adaptation.

''Of course I am also interested in Dutch football fans. I hope that this kind of love in Turkey is also worthy of our supporters."

Manu was forced out of Brighton after struggling for playing time.

In all, the 23-year-old made only ten league appearances for the Seagulls since joining from Feyenoord in 2015, having spent time out on loan with Huddersfield Town and Dutch side Go Ahead Eagles.

He netted two times in 14 Eredivisie appearances for Eagles before seeing his loan move terminated after the penultimate matchday of last season for an "unprofessional conduct".
