The Belgian has filled the void left by King's retirement.
"Yes heâ€™s a great find. I think obviously he was at Ajax before and Iâ€™d seen him play a few times and could see he was a top player. But I think heâ€™s come into the league and adapted so well, similar to Vermaelen when he first came in, and he is a very talented face so we are delighted at how quickly he has adapted to the league," King told Absolute Radio.
King was speaking to Ian Wright of Absolute Radio Rock n' Roll Football. Every Saturday from 5pm on 1215AM. For more, visit absoluteradio.co.uk/football.
