“It was always going to have to be something really good to take me away, I always said that, and I really gave it a lot of thought. I spoke to my wife, my dad and my brother who is down in England. It was a family decision in the end. It will be difficult to leave but football is a short career and I have to make the most out of it. I want to try and achieve as much as I can in the game.

“The club did everything they possibly could to keep me, they could not have done more and that was such a good feeling. I appreciate everything the club have done for me over the past four years, especially during this spell when there has been so much speculation. The club and the manager have been different class and I can only thank them.

“I do love the place. I have a great relationship with the manager, one of the strongest I have had. I have a great relationship with all the staff. There are so many people around the club that I get on well with. You come in every day and chat away to people. Everyone is smiling and joking away. It is just a really good place to be. It is a top, top club here and I don’t think people realise just how good it is. And I have a great relationship with the fans who have been so supportive towards me, ever since I arrived.

“But the opportunity to join a club pushing for the EPL was too good to turn down. That was a massive thing for me. I feel now is the right time for me to go to England and try it down there.

“I have had a great four years here and I have achieved a lot. We’ve had some good times but I feel now is the time for me to down to England and try it down there, to have a new challenge to try and progress as a player.”
