The former Liverpool defender told liverpoolfc.com: “Since I left at 21 it has been five years of hard work to get back to the Premier League. The only thing I regret more is not playing more games and fulfilling my potential.
“It took me a while to get over that regret but I'm over it now and it has been five years of tough, tough work – ups and downs – but I'm finally back in the Premier League, which I'm happy about.
“I knew about six or seven of the lads coming through the leagues, so fitting in there was actually really easy for me and I'm enjoying it.
“Now it's just to try to get some more game time but I understand that's a process as well because the lads have been there three years, more or less the same team, so it's going to be tough to break in but I'm sure if I continue to work hard I can do that in the future."
