Dwight Tiendalli has slotted in smoothly at Swansea City – now he aims to make his mark in the Premier League.
The left-back has spent his first week in SA1 getting to know his new team-mates following his arrival on a free transfer to boost Michael Laudrup’s options at left-back.
With Neil Taylor ruled out for the season, the former Dutch Under-21s and Twente defender is pushing young Ben Davies for the left-back slot for Saturday’s trip to Aston Villa.
And Tiendalli, who is a former team-mate of Michel Vorm, Kemy Agustien and Jonathan de Guzman, admits his move to the Liberty couldn’t have gone any better so far.
“Training here is very similar to what I had at Twente – it’s about the ball and playing position,” he said. “I like this kind of training.
“It’s great for me because I can just fit in without any problems. I hope I can show what I’m capable of, whether that’s this Saturday or the next game.
“Everyone wants to play in the Premier League and I’m looking forward to my first minute in it.
“The crowds are unbelievable and I’ve been told by Michel, Kemy and Jonathan that the Swansea supporters are amazing.
“The team have made a good start but Aston Villa are looking to get a good result so we have to be at our best. There’s no easy points in this division.”
