Manchester United striker David Bellion admits it is good to be back home in France having settled quickly to life at Nice.

The young hit-man has moved to Nice in a loan deal that lasts until the end of the present campaign and he concedes that he is enjoying life in his homeland.

Bellion's career in England initially began at Sunderland, where after a series of promising displays he was snapped up by United chief Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, Bellion has struggled to live up to expectations at Old Trafford and it seems likely that he could be set for a permanent exit in the summer.

Bellion spent part of this season on-loan at West Ham, but failed to make the expected impact before being shipped out to Nice.

''I've had four big years for my experience,'' he told But!

''The only problem is I miss pace because I played not too often during the last months.

''I was substitute at Sunderland and I had a difficult story at Manchester United, with only bits of matches.

''Even if they were satisfying, because I scored, I needed to play much more.

''Now I try to show my level at Nice. I wanted to come back to France because I am not known here.

''I want to show I am able to play in Ligue 1. The English league is exceptional, but I wanted to come back to France.''
