Former Blackburn Rovers midfielder Steven N'Zonzi is happy with his first weeks at Stoke City.

The Frenchman is feeling settled at Stoke and has declared himself ready to play ahead of Saturday's visit of City.

"I feel good because although I have not played, I have been training and working hard all of the time," N'Zonzi told The Sentinel. "It was difficult not playing, difficult mentally sometimes, but now I am fine.

"It has been good at Stoke because everybody is making me feel good and feel welcome - the staff and the players."
