“It went quickly. Only a few days ago I got in touch with the manager Kenny Jackett,” Peter told Rotherdam website

“Knowing him, he is a manager that believes in you and that gives me a lot of positivity. He obviously believes in me and thinks I can do a job for him, so I am looking forward to a new start and doing my best for the team.
