Zdenek Grygera says he already feels at home with his new club despite only joining Fulham last week.

The Czech defender completed a free transfer switch from Juventus last Thursday and his early impressions of the London club have been positive.

In the short time that I’ve been at Fulham I must say that everyone, from the players to staff, has been very welcoming. I feel really good and at home already.

I’m really happy that I’m able to write another page in my career and experience something new. I think that I can bring a lot of experience to the team. I hope that everything will work out well here and that I will be able to provide something to the team.

After having played for Ajax and Juventus, what’s important for me now is to get used to English football and everything that is required from me to play well. The opportunity to play in the Premier League is a big thing for me. Now I want to concentrate on being here and doing well for Fulham in the Premier League.

The 31 year-old says he has enjoyed his first training sessions at Motspur Park even if many of Fulham’s established names have been away on international defender.

We’ve been working with a small group this week as a lot of players are away on international duty. There is a lot of quality in the squad. There are a few new players in the squad and you are always going to need a bit of time to settle in but we’ll try to do this as quickly as possible.

We all want to prepare well for our next match against Blackburn. I’m looking forward to being involved in games and discovering for myself the atmosphere. Even though Craven Cottage is a small stadium there is an atmosphere around the place that makes it a great setting. I hope that we win on Sunday and are able to move forward positively.
