The 19-year-old midfielder is on loan to the club that currently tops the Norwegian Premier Division.
"I've played five games so far, and it's going quite well - we're top of the table!" Elabdellaoui told City's website. "We often play three in midfield and I have taken the defensive role, but I'm also going out onto the right or the left so I'm doing a few different things.
"My favourite players are David Silva or Iniesta, I'd like to be a bit like them!"
