Grygera settled at Fulham

New signing eyeing home debut

Grygera: Excited by the opportunity to play in the Premier League

Fulham summer signing Zdenek Grygera has revealed he feels at home at the club already and can not wait to get his career started in English football.

The 31-year-old made a deadline day move to Fulham on a free transfer after Italian side Juventus agreed to terminate the final year of his contract.

The Czech Republic defender, who has 53 caps for his country, has signed a one-year deal with Martin Jol's men with the option of a 12-month extension.

Grygera began training with his new tram-mates this week and admits he can not wait to make his debut against Blackburn on Saturday.

Experience

"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," Grygera told the club's official website.

"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.

"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.

"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."
