West Ham United midfielder Sofiane Feghouli has stated that he's enjoying playing in the English Premier League (EPL).

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder joined West Ham in July, 2016 on a three-year contract from Spanish La Liga side Valencia.

But Feghouli struggled to command a regular place in Slaven Bilic's starting line-up in the first-round of the current 2016/17 EPL campaign.

"In the first part of the season I did not have many opportunities to play," Feghouli told EFE.

"But now, as soon as I have had them, I have taken advantage of them and I have won my position.

"I am very happy, enjoying this league and I want to continue here," the Algeria international continued.

"It's a new and very positive experience after six years in Valencia. I'm happy here in London, although it's colder and rainier than in Spain!"

The former Almeria star has made 16 league appearances for the Hammers thus far - netting two goals in the process.
