The youngster told Danish media outlet TV 2 Sport: “This means a lot. It’s why I’ve taken this move.

“I would really like (to play in the Premier League) – it’s the greatest league in the world and I feel really ready.

“And the welcoming I’ve received over there, I feel part of it now.

“That’s the most important thing, I’ve realised.

“I assume I’m at the same level as everyone else (in the squad) – maybe with a little head start, but like everyone else I want to prove that.

“I should play. (But) this isn’t Holland anymore – this is the Premier League. It’s on another level.”
