Both arrived as two of 12 new signings over the summer, and have wasted no time in striking up a strong bond on and off the field.
Primarily Spanish speaking, the duo have grown close in an attempt to familiarise themselves with their surroundings – as well as form a partnership on the pitch.
“We speak the same language, Spanish. We’re very close and spend a lot of time together.
“I help with his English, which is ok already.
“We play well on the pitch together. He knows when to come for the ball and I know when to find him so he can hold it up and I can make my run off of him.
“We’re both happy here and are good friends.
“He’s a really strong player. He knows when to hold and when to pass it off. I think he’ll score a lot of goals for us.”
