Cape Town - Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen says he's settled well in London and is hoping to prove himself in the Premier League this season.

The Dutch international is yet to get off the mark for Spurs but has also already been made to feel at home by the club's fans.

The former AZ Alkmaar frontman hails from the same area as former Manchester United forward Ruud van Nistelrooy and has inevitably drawn comparisons to the Holland legend, but Janssen feels all the talk is a bit premature.

Janssen told Dutch newspaper AD: "In England they are just finding out that me and Van Nistelrooy are from the same area.

"But I wouldn't say we're being mentioned in the same breath - maybe that will come. I would think that's an enormous honour. I'm not as far as him yet."

Janssen finished last season as the Eredivisie's top goalscorer with 27 goals in 34 matches.

He added: "I've always felt a strong urge to prove myself. Maybe that's my biggest talent. I can tell the crowd appreciates the way I play.

"Within the squad I was immediately accepted. We have a young, ambitious group, with no players who feel they've already arrived. That made it easier, I think. I really was accommodated fantastically."
