The young Dutchman has already been used in a variety of positions by Lambert.
He said: "That's the beauty about him, he can play a few positions. He is only a young lad as well, he's got to adapt to certain things but I've been quite pleased with what he's done. In the second half against Liverpool, like everyone else, he grew into the game."
