John Guidetti is determined to finally hit the heights in the Premier League after overcoming the frustrations of being laid low by a mystery virus by joining Stoke until the end of the season.
With the likes of Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic ahead of him in the pecking order at Man City, Guidetti has again had to find solace in a loan spell having impressed at Feyenoord in 2011/12.
– Man City striker John Guidetti after joining Stoke on loan
I am so grateful to the club for giving me the opportunity to show everybody I am capable of playing at this level.
It's been a frustrating and difficult time for me, but I am firmly back on the road again now, and this is a great chance for me to hopefully play some games, score some goals and enjoy myself.
It's a dream for me to be honest, because I have always wanted to play in the Premier League, which is in my opinion, the toughest and most demanding league in the world.
