After laying the foundations for his career with 14 games and six goals for QPR, he is ready to take on the challenge at St James' Park with both hands.
He told the Evening Chronicle: "I have learned that it is a strong league.
"It is very quick. It is different to France. For me, as a striker, if you are intelligent and you use your qualities, you can score a lot of goals. I learnt game after game from my mistakes.
"I learnt what I can do better.
"Now I feel ready to produce that week-in, week-out."
