“I need to get used to the squad and then train before we can see what will happen.
“It’s the decision of Mikel. I just arrived. I’m prepared but I need to get used to the style of play.
“I think I have to be quick, make sure that I learn everything as fast as I can. I have make sure I do everything on the training ground and make sure Mikel sees that I’m ready to play for him.”
