Fulham teenage striker Richard Barroilhet is happy to be back in England.
"Having been born in England, I've always followed the football in this country," the Westminster-born youngster told fulhamfc.com. "So it was natural for me to want to come over and see what I could do. Fortunately the chance to try my luck at Fulham came up and after a successful trial it worked out well for me.
"I really enjoy the challenge here, and the Premier League is an exciting place to be - this is the league that the rest of the world watches. To make it here would be unbelievable.
"I enjoyed my time in France with Nice, because it's a good club and one that looks after its young players. But I'm really pleased to be at Fulham because I know that I can become a better player here.
"I'm quite tall, but I think that I could be a bit stronger - perhaps I need to make my presence felt a bit more? But that's certainly something that I will learn here, you have to really, because English football is a lot tougher than the football in France.
"I grew up in the South of France playing football on the beach - so the intensity is obviously a lot different. Of course, this is a more demanding environment and from that I have no choice but to become a better player. It's hard, but that's what I'm here to do."
