The Geordie wants to help his Swans recover from consecutive defeats.
"I'm a Premier League footballer and it sounds good," he said.
"It took a while to sink in. But it comes with pressure. Look at Andy Carroll, he went for £35million - but I'm not under as much pressure as he is.
"It was a big amount, a record signing for Swansea. But my job is always to score goals. That's why I came here."
