Altidore: I am a better player now

Sunderland's new striker Jozy Altidore insists his two years in Holland have made him a much better player than during his previous spell in the Premier League.

I think I just became a better player in Holland than the one when I was at Hull.

On and off the ball and linking up with the players around me, I just got better. It's that simple.

I've become a much more confident player since then.

The two leagues are completely different, but we're trying to play football which looks good and hopefully I can score some goals.
