“I left home at sixteen, knowing that I would have to sacrifice time with family and friend and I do not regret it.
“Those five years gave me a lot of experience and the opportunity to train with top players, whether it was Ben Arfa, Cabaye, Demba Ba or Collocini.
“I was on the bench in the Premier League, I entered in the FA Cup against Leicester, which was also a great experience.
“Overall, I had the opportunity to see what is football abroad. I met great guys and great coaches such as Alan Pardew. “
“DAC approached me in the summer, but I believed in the Championship I would get more opportunity.
“Unfortunately, the new coach did not give much opportunity, so I am happy to have answered the call of DAC. After five years abroad, I look forward to coming home.
“I know that there are excellent conditions, a new stadium, fans go to games and create a great atmosphere. I’m looking forward greatly to the league and the new challenge.”
