The 26-year-old admits it did take him a while to find his feet - although he is now confident he has got to grips with the game in this country.
He said: "I have learnt about the intensity in the game and to run, to attack, to defend. I am stronger now than at the start of the season.
"It is more physical. The referee doesn't whistle like in France, so you have to learn about that. You have to be very focused."
