The Dutchman was not retained by Newcastle for next season.
"Playing in the Premier League is different than in Germany, but I like this way of playing," he said.
"It's more physical, but I like it, especially when I play behind the striker. I like being in little pockets behind the striker.
"I try to give the striker chances, and I try to make one-twos with the striker or score myself. I also want to play as a striker, but when I play as a 10, I also do my job."
