A strong and tenacious defender with superb technique and great experience, the 32-year-old is now hoping to make his mark in the Barclays Premier League.

"I am starting to get used to this team. I need to adapt here very fast so I need to understand the philosophy of this team. I want to be one of them very, very soon," he told whufc.com.
