"To get my future secured now for a good amount of years is great, so there is nothing for me to worry about.
"I am looking forward to next season. I am more than confident that, given a chance, I will be able to play well in the Premier League and I am looking forward to that challenge.
"There is a lot to prove for some of the lads and it's a good stage on which to do that."
