Leicester City loan star Yakubu Aiyegbeni insists he has not brought a Premier League ego to the Walkers Stadium.
Foxes boss Sven Goran Eriksson pulled off a major coup this month after landing the Everton striker on loan.
The Nigerian hit-man, who has also played for Portsmouth and Middlesbrough, has made an instant impression with the Championship club.
Yakubu's goal in Leicester's 4-2 weekend win over Millwall was his second in two games for his new club.
However, the 28-year-old insists he is not lording it over his team-mates as team spirit is crucial to the team's lofty aspirations.
"I don't think of myself as someone who has come straight from the Premier League. Big star? No," said Yakubu.
"It doesn't matter how big you are as a player, you have to stick together as a team."
