The Dutch international moved to the Royals in June from Russian club Alania Vladikavkaz, having played for four clubs in the past three years.

After living in the club hotel at the Madejski Stadium, the former Real Madrid winger has moved into a house and is happy in Berkshire.

Talking to the Reading Evening Post, the 26-year-old said: "I have a house and I don't have to stay at the stadium.

"I'm really happy to be here and I hope I can be here a long time."

He also says he is back to full fitness after being worked hard by Reading's coaching staff and manager Nigel Adkins.

"I have to thank the gaffer, I have to thank the coach and I have to thank everybody who is working around me," he said.

"They worked really hard with me. It was a really tough pre-season but I'm in really good shape now."
