Rodolph Austin: Happy with how his Leeds career has begun
Leeds United's Jamaican ace Rodolph Austin admits he is loving life in England.
The 27-year-old midfielder moved to Elland Road in the summer from Brann in Norway and he has already emerged as a cult figure amongst the Leeds fan.
Austin now admits he is loving life in West Yorkshire, telling the Jamaican Observer: "It's fun so far since I've been there.
"I'm doing well, the team is doing well and it's good being a part of it. They want to get promotion to the Premier League and everything is going well so far, so we just have to keep doing well as a team and hopefully, it will continue."
He is very pleased to be finally playing in England, after previously seeing moves to Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers fail to materialise.
"It is where anyone would want to be. It is more professional and life is much better there in terms of the facilities and everything. It just feels different - the language, the food and the atmosphere in the training sessions and at the games, it is just wonderful, it is amazing to be a part of that.
"It is where I have always wanted to be and now that I'm there I just give my all and do my best in training and in games and just enjoy it because I'm comfortable."
Austin admits he loves the relationship he has already built with the Leeds fans.
"It is amazing to be a Jamaican and get the love that I get there," he said.
"They have a song there for me already and anywhere I get the ball they shout "shoot!", and when I tackle the place erupts, so it's a good feeling and it's a good place to play at home and even away from home, because a lot of fans travel to these games, so it is wonderful to be a part of that."
