Deadline day signing Luka Belić admits he has settled in quickly after making his loan switch from West Ham.
Speaking to MFC TV, the Serbian forward spoke about his style of play, his ability to adapt and his ambitions for the season ahead.
The 20-year-old said: “I feel really good and I already love it here – it’s a nice place, I have nice team-mates.
“Everybody has accepted me, the doctors, the coaching staff and everyone else.”

He added: “I’ve only been here three days and already it’s been really nice for me – everybody has accepted me really well and I already feel like I’m at home.”
Luka admitted that he had to adjust to the English game when he moved to West Ham from the Serbian top flight, and he knows he’ll have to adjust again to the Ladbrokes Premiership.
He said: “When I came to England the game was a little bit tougher, a little bit harder and they told me when I come to Scotland it’s going to be even tougher, but I’ll adapt and that’s no problem for me because I play that way.”
He added: “I’ll be ready for that aspect of the game, but defenders better be ready because I’ll tackle them too and I’ll be ready.”

When asked about manager Mark McGhee and assistant James McFadden, Luka admitted that they have made him feel welcome.
He said: “I’m looking forward to playing under them – they are both lovely people and they’ve fit me in and accepted me like I’m at home so it’s really been a nice couple of days for me.
“I didn’t think it was going to be so quick and so good – when I came from Serbia to West Ham I had about maybe a month of problems to adjust but now because I’ve already adapted to the language and everything it’s been a lot easier.”
He added: “I want to establish my place in the team quickly, give everything I’ve got to get a lot of games and fight for my place in the team.”
