Andreas Cornelius says he can handle being Cardiff City's record signing.

Cardiff paid FC Copenhagen £8.5 million for the striker last month.

“It’s been easy to settle in. Everyone is very friendly at Cardiff,” said Cornelius.

“I’m very excited to move here. This is a great opportunity. There is a great squad to work with and I’m looking forward to it.

“It was a bit of a surprise. I did not know Copenhagen were going to let me go. It all went quickly. But I just felt that it was the right decision to make.

“I see the price paid as a motivation for me. If Cardiff want to pay that amount of money for me then I must be good and they must believe that I’m good."
