Fulham midfielder Derek Boateng says he's still adjusting to the Premier League's demands.

The 30-year-old midfielder played in Greece, Israel, Germany and Spain before he joined Ukrainian club FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in 2011. And, now he’s a fixture in the First Team squad at Fulham, Boateng is keen to help others develop and learn from his experiences.

He told fulhamfc.com: “It’s a bit different to the other leagues I’ve played in around Europe. In Spain, they have a different style of play and the fans are different, so it’s been good for me to come to England because of the language and I have a lot of friends here. It’s not too far away from Ghana either, so I can always go back quickly when I need to.

“I am a new player, so I try to help the other new players settle here as well and that is very important. When I came in, the way everyone reacted and received me into the Club was great, so I try and do that to the new boys as well.”
