He told reporters: “I sort of expected that [his performance against Leeds United] because I knew Donny as a player from the outside.
“I brought him here because of his talents in terms of he can play, his intelligence, his work ethic, really intelligent and technical player.
“He was part of a really strong work-ethic kind of performance, he matched the other players in that sense, he gave us a sense of calm. He linked the play, looks confident on the ball, and that’s exactly what I brought him here to do.
“I think he can do different roles, and that was the beauty and why I moved so quickly to try to get him when I came in.”
