Emanuelson says he wasn't interested in staying on the bench for the second-half of the season.
"It is a choice for myself. I felt that I was at a dead end, just sitting there. I also cannot stay and not play. Here I play in midfield, the trainer is happy with my arrival and the Premier League is a challenge.
"I'm looking forward to this and the priority is to play good games," he told Voetbal International.
