Kevin-Prince Boateng is prepared to bide his time over making his full Tottenham debut.
The Germany U21 star told the Spurs website: "It is very fast and you have to be fast yourself in mind and body. You have to make the right decisions and make them quickly on the pitch.
"Settling in over here has been easy, I've got a nice house and my wife and I are very happy.
"The main thing is to get playing and that is a big challenge because we've got a lot of top midfield players. I think if I train hard I will get my chance, I am a patient boy and you will see that."
