“It is a big club in England and it is a great chance for me to come here and progress and hopefully then get a chance to play and help the team.

“I have dreamt of playing in England many times and it has the biggest league in the world.

“It is good that I am coming to a club with Chinese owners and maybe that plays a role for me as well.

"I am just really excited to get started.


"I go back to Switzerland for the weekend and then I come back on Monday and I am really looking forward to it.”
