Luka Modric has hailed the signing of Croatia team-mate Niko Kranjcar and thinks he will settle into life at Tottenham straight away.
Kranjcar completed a switch to Spurs on transfer deadline day, joining international colleagues Modric and Vedran Corluka at White Hart Lane.
The 25-year-old is in his fourth season in the Premier League and Modric, currently sidelined with a fractured ankle, believes the experience he has already gained from playing in England will help him adapt to life at his new club that bit quicker.
Modric told Spurs' official website: "Niko knows everything about English football and he won't need long to settle, especially with myself and Charlie already here and of course he knows Jermain and Crouchy from Portsmouth.
"He speaks perfect English as well. He's a great player and a great person.
"I'm glad because it means I will play with him and Charlie (Corluka) in the same team. He's a fantastic player and he will help us.
"He's strong on the ball, has great vision and is a great passer of the ball. He's a dangerous player."
