Stoke City No2 Mark Bowen says they'll seek to ease Bojan Krkic into their system.
The former Barcelona striker arrived this week.
âBojan has spoken to Marc Muniesa before he came to the place and Marc told him about the way we go about things,â Bowen told TalkSport.
âMaybe he has found it difficult over the last two years.
âIt has been suggested we paid Â£3million for him but thatâs not correct, it was a nominal fee to Barcelona and the way they conducted themselves in the negotiations was fantastic.
âMaybe he needs someone to love him, put their arms around him and put some trust in him and thatâs the key and thatâs what we have got.
âThe lad is ready to settle down, stay at a place and play some football. Stoke is a fantastic place to be, with a fantastic fan base which is a pleasure for our lads to play in front of.
âWe are hoping this is a good signing for us.â
