Chelsea winger Christian Atsu believes he has the attributes to excel in the English Premier League after recent ill-fated spells.
The Chelsea-owned Ghana international was loaned out to Everton and Bournemouth but could make an impact.
After helping Newcastle United to secure automatic qualification to the 2017/2018 season, he claims he is ready for another top-flight challenge should he remain at St James’ Park.
“Okay… I know I’m very small, but I also have a very big heart. It does not matter how small you are, I go to win – in football and in life,” he told the Daily Mail.
“It just didn’t work for me at Everton or Bournemouth. I am more focused in my life now. I have forgotten what happened in the past. You need to be in the moment.
“It is my dream to play in the Premier League, that is why I signed for Chelsea. Everyone in Ghana watches our football. Now I have that chance. Rafa Benitez has helped me so much this year, he is not only a great coach, but a great man.”
Atsu hopes to make permanent a £6.5million move in the coming weeks.
