The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Ben Baker

JON DADI BOD­VARS­SON has praised his Wolves team-mates for help­ing him set­tle quickly into life in the West Mid­lands af­ter an im­pres­sive start at his new club.

The Ice­landic for­ward, 24, ar­rived at Mo­lineux on a three-year deal in the sum­mer for an undis­closed fee from FC Kais­er­slautern in Ger­many and has scored twice in his first seven league ap­pear­ances.

Bod­vars­son, who says he grew up watch­ing the Premier League and Cham­pi­onship, started all five games, in­clud­ing against Eng­land, in Ice­land’s his­toric run at Euro 2016.

He said: “I love it here. It’s much eas­ier to set­tle than it was in Ger­many.

“I speak the same lan­guage as the guys. They’re more open and know it’s im­por­tant for new play­ers to come into things fast.

“I have to give them re­ally big credit for that. They’ve been fan­tas­tic to me – the same as the coach­ing staff and the club in gen­eral, es­pe­cially the fans of course.

“When that all adds to­gether, it makes you so com­fort­able on the pitch. You en­joy your­self much more. It’s been fan­tas­tic so far and hope­fully it will keep be­ing the same way.”

SET­TLED: Bod­vars­son
