The Welsh striker has scored three goals since moving to The Valley over the summer having grown disenchanted at previous club Reading.
"Ever since I came in for a bit of training the week before the start of the season, the manager and the players have welcomed me with arms wide open," he said.
"It's a great squad, a great team and it's a really nice club. Obviously the fans have been really patient towards me and it's just made me fit in straight away.
"For the past two or three years at Reading I wasn't happy. I didn't think I was getting treated how I should have done so it's a fresh start for me now here. I've settled in well, everyone has been tremendous since I've got in.
"It was a big thing for me in the summer to make sure I made the right choice in terms of my future because I want to kick on, I want to be playing in the Premier League.
"To do that I need to play matches. It's just the perfect fit to come here, it's a big club and a great fan base and it's just worked out really well."
